Both of these Cabernet Sauvignons are soft, elegant, dark ruby/plum/garnet-colored, evolved, medium-bodied efforts with attractive notes of spice, earth, red and black currants intermixed with herbs and background oak. Not terribly deep by Napa standards, they are obviously meant to be drunk in their first 7-8 years of life. Heidi Barrett is the consulting winemaker and the well-known Jim Barbour is the viticultural manager. Both are identical blends of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot.

Drink Dates 2010-2020

Aromas of roasted herb, red pepper and sage are complex, elegant and spicy, joined by ripe currant, plum and black cherry fruit, but this is at its best on the full-bodied palate, where the texture is supple, graceful and polished.

I polished off this bottle while playing poker this weekend. I really was not drinking it with tasting notes in mind but I do feel it was crazy good. No decanting was necessary and it had very smooth and refined tannins and bit of a chalkiness to it. Highly recommended.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
