($300) Good full ruby. Impossibly sexy aromas of black raspberry, black cherry, pipe tobacco, saddle leather and creme caramel A wine of extraordinary layered depth, with near-confectionery sweetness leavened by superb energy. This boasts much more early appeal than the backward Kayli Morgan but there's also outstanding structure here to support a long evolution in bottle. Finishes with remarkably lush tannins and great breadth and length.

A perfect wine, the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Ark Vineyard (1,300 - 1,400 cases) from Howell Mountain is one of the great efforts from this high elevation terroir. It offers notes of burning embers, black raspberries, blueberries and flowers, a full-bodied opulence, wonderful intensity, but the wine is not weighty or overripe. Fleshy and voluptuous with terrific floral notes, it should drink well for 15-20 years.

A firm band of tannins is wrapped around a chewy core of flavors that extend from green olive and herb to mineral, graphite and dried berry flavors. No disputing its muscular profile and chewy tannins, but there's also a wealth of dense flavors to enjoy down the line.
