The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Eternity is quite a bit richer and weightier than the straight bottling. Plums, cassis, camphor, spices and graphite all flow effortlessly in this medium to full-bodied wine. There is plenty of stuffing in the glass, which suggests the 2009 will continue to deliver considerable pleasure for a number of years. The addition of 11.5% Petit Verdot is felt in the gravitas and sheer density of the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2027.More Info
With elaborate oak, concentrated fruit, dense tannins and exquisite balance, this tiny production Cabernet—the winery’s first-ever reserve—demands to be cellared. It’s completely dry and rich in blackberries, black currants, baking chocolate, anise and minerals. It feels dramatic from the start, like the opening notes of a great symphony or rock song. Cellar it for at least eight years, and it could age well beyond that. — S.H.More Info
Just an excellent Cabernet from Clark-Claudon Vineyards and the winemaking team of Frederic Delivert and Jean Hoefliger (Alpha Omega Winery). A medium-bodied and elegant Howell Mountain wine from a tough growing year where a late spring frost claimed 50% of the fruit. The wine opens with a rich nose of black cherry enhanced with notes of cedar. The palate is caressed with black cherry, blackberry, cedar and ripe plum supported by integrated tannins and food friendly acidity. Give this lovely a couple of hours to fully express her depth as the notes of cedar give way to softer flavors of chocolate, espresso and cigar box.More Info

Just broke open your 2008 Estate Cab...nothing short of spectacular! It's very seldom you find this level of mastery in a 100% Cab varietal...that you're able to extract such wonderous complexity from it is a testimony to your passion and incredible skill. Bravo gentlemen! I am your eternal advocate from here on out! :)
