Wine Advocate | Rating: 95There are only 250 cases and it comes from what appears to be the finest vintage of Napa Cabernet Sauvignon between 2007 and 2012. It boasts a deep ruby/purple color along with notes of charcoal, white chocolate and creme de cassis, a full-bodied opulence, impeccable purity, decent acidity and ripe tannin that nicely frames the wine. This serious, rich Cabernet Sauvignon is as exceptional as one would expect from this winemaking genius.Author: Robert Parker
