International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 102

(includes 5% cabernet franc and 2% petit verdot) Deep ruby-red, with faint amber at the rim. Deeply pitched aromas of currant, tobacco, mocha, bitter chocolate, game, oak char and cigar box; strong element of sweet roasted wood. Sweeter and richer than the Alexander Valley bottling; has more mid-palate stuffing to buffer its firm spine of acidity. Just a whiff of herbs in the mouth. Finishes quite long, with broad tannins reaching the teeth. Complex and satisfying.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 132

The 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa looks to be one of the finest wines made by the winemaking team of proprietor Justin Meyer and winemaker/viticulturist Daniel Baron. The 1997 Napa is an impressive effort. A blend of 93% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest 5% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, this wine has a flamboyant nose of fruitcake, licorice, Asian spice, black currants, and toasty wood. Deep, opulent, viscous, intense, chewy, and thick, it is a classic Napa Cabernet Sauvignon made in an all-American oak lovers' style. It should drink well for 12-15 years.

Smooth and polished, with rich currant, dill, cedar and cherry fruit. Turns complex, with fine, well-integrated tannins, finishing with persistent flavors. 17,000 cases made.

Opened in June of 2010 after cellaring in perfect conditions since 2000. Massive cedar box on the nose and palette. No browning to be seen at all. Outside of the cedar wood, good fruit still to be found. Currants and cherries, with a little dustiness. Would consume this in the next couple of years before it starts going down.

Dark garnet color and a concentrated nose of cassis, roasting coffee, chocolate, violets and sandalwood. Lush with a full body and a long, fruity intense finish.
