(a 60/40 blend of cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc, from a vineyard in St. Helena Full ruby-red. Aromas of licorice and bitter chocolate, lifted by a strong violet florality from the cabernet franc. Fat, lush and rich but quite dry; very full in the mouth, with a faint alcoholic warmth. But this very broad wine has sound acidity and excellent length. In texture and shape, this is rather Old World in style. The yield here is always under 1.5 tons per acre for the cabernet sauvignon, notes Bob Hitchcock.

Another great B&H. The Cab Franc was screaming on this one. A little heat on the finish but very tolerable.
