This estate's super-impressive Cabernet Sauvignons seemed to go through a listless, but brief period, but the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate marks a resurrection in quality. Its dense ruby/purple color is accompanied by notes of grilled herbs, wood, creme de cassis, chocolate and espresso. This full-bodied effort cuts a hedonistic as well as velvety swath across the palate. With terrific texture, density and length, it is the best wine they have made in a long time, perhaps the best ever.More Info

Our family, along with winemaker Frederic Delivert, sat down to the amazing task of reviewing our wines from the inaugural 1993 to the upcoming 2007.
We had three objectives;
There was much to celebrate!!!
Year to year these stellar wines were bright, fresh, balanced, beautifully rich & alluringly sexy, while most had the acidity & back bone to assure continued aging. Importantly, they were not only amazingly delicious, but they were also consistently flawless.
Favorites of the Tasting; the 1995, 2005 & the Upcoming 2007

This family-owned vineyard in the northeast mountains of Napa Valley has produced a sensational 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate. Its dense ruby/purple hue is followed by a Pauillac-like perfume of spice box, cedar, black currants, and subtle background oak. The wine is full-bodied with sweet but noticeable tannins, and a savory, expansive mouthfeel. Drink this beauty now and over the next 15-20 years.More Info
