Crafted with the Bordeaux varieties, the wine opens with an explosion of blackberry, kirsch, over-ripe Rainier cherries, mocha and dark chocolate.  It is a luxurious Cabernet with a structure that is fully integrated, soft and incredibly supple.  2010 was a great vintage in Napa, with all the sunshine a grape could ever want to ripen to its full and maximum potential, creating wines of intense concentration and enormous flavors.

The winery has been aging Barrel Select for us for four years – and now it’s ready to jump into your glass and party.
