($160; includes 3% malbec and 2% petit verdot) Bright, full medium ruby. Sexy, fruit-driven aromas of black raspberry, crushed blackberry and minerals. Lush, broad and sweet, without being at all overdone. Intensely flavored and vibrant, this fruit bomb shows an enticing sugar/acid balance. Finishes quite broad, with fine-grained tannins. A few years of bottle aging should bring additional complexity.

This boutique blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Petit Verdot and 2% Malbec is a broodingly backward, formidably endowed, full throttle, pedal-to-the-metal style of Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2004's 15.5% alcohol is well-concealed by the wine's wealth of fruit and glycerin. This full-bodied beauty is black as a moonless night. It exhibits abundant notes of plums, blackberries and creme de cassis as well as nicely integrated wood, acidity and tannin. It will offer an impeccable well-made, stunningly rich, complex, two-fisted glass of Cabernet Sauvignon over the next 15+ years.

Rich and concentrated, with a generous mix of currant, blackberry, wild berry and mocha-laced oak. Intense, yet avoids being heavy, turning sleek and elegant. Deftly balanced and tightly focused, with a complex, lingering finish that ends with hints of herb and black olive. 875 cases made.

Very pure and concentrated with dark berry and blueberry, vanilla, surrounded by velvety tannin and long finish. Almost perfect.
