The final blend for this wine is approachable in its youth, with a soft texture and notable finesse, while still possessing the structure to age for a decade or longer.

Winemaker Notes
This bold and age-worthy wine brings together grapes from three Estate vineyards to offer a classic expression of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Showcasing Monitor Ledge’s bright red fruit, Rector Creek’s darker red fruit elements, and Patzimaro’s sophisticated mineral, earth and olive character, the final blend displays nuance and varietal integrity. On the palate, subtle notes of herb, spice, toffee and mocha mingle with layers of cassis, currant and black raspberry to add complexity and elegance.
Production
The 2006 growing season was marked by a very mild summer with a mid-July heat spike that accelerated ripening. Mild temperatures continued throughout the fall allowing for a moderately paced harvest. The long growing season brought complex and intense flavor and aroma development.
