  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90

    ($95) Good bright, deep ruby. Aromas of black raspberry and chocolate, lifted by a floral element. More chewy and gripping than the Patzimaro, with a more layered texture to the fresh red fruit, black raspberry and floral flavors. Finishes with very good length and lift.

    Complex, if lacking in focus, this serves up a mix of plum, dried currant, candied cherry and spice notes that turn earthy and leathery on the finish.

    There are 396 cases of the 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Rector Creek Vineyard Estate, a beautiful effort displaying copious quantities of blackberries, blueberries, cherries, smoke, lead pencil shavings, and background oak. Full-bodied with supple tannin, and a broad, expansive mouthfeel, it will provide lovely drinking over the next 15+ years.

  • Co-founded in 1976 by Dan and Margaret Duckhorn, Duckhorn Wine Company includes Duckhorn Vineyards, Paraduxx, and Goldeneye Winery. Their Duckhorn Vineyards estate is renowned for its Bordeaux varietal wines and since 1982 has also produced a Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc. Duckhorn commits itself to source the finest fruit in the Napa Valley and subsequently has purchased several properties to join the estate vineyard program. Currently the winery owns six estate vineyards along the slopes of Howell Mountain. Winemakers at Duckhorn aim to treat each vineyard block individually, bringing an artisan's approach to the winery. The winemaker may blend as many as 200 unique distinct lots and use up to 25 types of oak (mostly French) in the final barrel aging. Duckhorn's sister label, Decoy, is a unique blend of Bordeaux varietals that varies from year to year.

    Paraduxx was created for the estate's winemakers to express themselves outside of Duckhorn's Bordeaux-style focus. The wine is a Napa Valley red blend consisting primarily of Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon. Goldeneye Winery and its sister label, Migration, produce Pinot Noir sourced from cool weather fruit in Mendocino County's Anderson Valley.
