  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 88

    Ripe, supple, harmonious and well-balanced, with graceful currant, spice, plum and black cherry fruit that's maturing nicely, finishing with well-integrated tannins.

    There are only micro-quantities produced of this wine from a one acre hillside vineyard in Napa. The 1992 exhibits an impressive dark ruby/purple color, as well as an attractive, pure, cassis-scented nose with earth and toasty new oak notes. Although closed, the wine is full-bodied, aggressively tannic, and astringent. If the tannin melts away, this Cabernet may merit a higher score. For now, it is a ruggedly constituted, hefty wine that does not reveal as much harmony as previous efforts. Do not touch a bottle before the turn of the century.

  • Hartwell's Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Sauvignon Blanc vines are ideally situated in the Stags Leap District of Napa, on the steep slope of a dormant volcano. They enjoy all the factors for winegrowing success: warm days, cool nights, good drainage, low yields, and the only granite in Stags Leap. Winemakers Benoit Touquette, trained at the University of Bordeaux, and Andy Erickson, trained at UC Davis, team up with consulting winemaker Michel Rolland to produce single varietal bottlings of distinction.
