(from vines on the east side of St. Helena at an altitude of 1,000 feet): Good deep ruby-red. Crystallized dark berries, licorice, graphite and smoke on the musky, slightly candied nose. Sweet and chewy, with warm cassis and mineral flavors. This rather backward wine finishes with a firm spine of tongue-dusting tannins and sound acidity. Thomas Brown, who took over winemaking here with the 2008 vintage, is now vinifying some lots of petit verdot and cabernet franc separately, and picking these vineyards later and riper than previously.

Deeply saturated color in the glass, the aromas of violet and sandalwood are coupled with rich, brooding dark chocolate and shadings of graphite, cinnamon and blueberry. The palate is luxuriously rounded smooth chocolate and warm blue/black flavors, along with some toothsome date nuttiness adding to the long finish. Well integrated tannins.
