  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 93

    A mouthful of pleasure, with a core of rich, supple blackberry, mocha, currant, exotic spice and light cedar flavors, all deftly proportioned and sharply focused. Most pleasing on the finish, where the flavors sail on.

    Good bright ruby. Subdued, slightly jammy aromas of blackberry and cassis. Warm and spicy in the mouth, with good backbone to the flavors of raspberry and cinnamon. Tightens up on the back end, finishing with dusty, slightly drying tannins. Jim Barbour organically farms this vineyard near Araujo Estate, and Celia Welch makes the wines.

    The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon opens with a beguiling bouquet of smoke, incense, tobacco, wild flowers and scorched earth. Silky and polished on the palate, the 2009 impresses for the way it balances an overt expression of fruit while retaining considerable underlying structure. I imagine the 2009 will enjoy a broad window of drinkability. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2029.

    Very good. Big fruit forward wine. Great flavors and big powerful aromas.

Kelly Fleming's 12-acre vineyard is tucked far back at the end of Pickett Road with the Calistoga Palisades looming over its shoulder. The vines are farmed organically under the management of Jim Barbour, keeping with Fleming's desire to promote environmental stewardship on her 300-acre property. Winemaker Celia Masyczek lends her consulting genius to the project, which produces a single Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc each vintage.
