    (includes 4% petit verdot): Good deep ruby. Rich, complex aromas and flavors of cassis, black raspberry, mocha and truffle, lifted by mineral and violet notes. Rich, plush and fine-grained; wonderfully round and layered in the mouth. For such a lush, deep wine, this cabernet boasts outstanding grip and verve. Really echoes in the mouth and on the long, classically dry aftertaste, where the tannins coat the teeth without leaving any impression of dryness. Terrific cabernet, perhaps the most complete wine to date from Vineyard 29.

    Offers tiers of complex flavors, extending from dusty earth to dried berry, black licorice, sage and cedar. The tannins are dry and gripping, yet the flavors push through pleasantly. Drink now through 2023. 686 cases made.

    The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon 29 Estate is quite a bit silkier from a textural perspective than the Aida Cabernet Sauvignon. Black cherries, plums, violets, new leather and tar are woven together nicely. This, too, is sumptuous, powerful and intense. Hints of chocolate, mocha and espresso are layered into the finish. Judging by the neighborhood, I would think this could be a meaningfully more polished wine, but the 2010 is really more about obvious opulence rather than nuance. The blend is 96% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025.

What to do when you find the land you purchased for retirement is, in fact, perfectly suited to growing Cabernet Sauvignon...in Napa? Plant a vineyard and start a new career. Teresa Norton and Tom Paine did just that in 1989, planting 3 acres under the direction of legendary vineyard manager David Abreu. In 1992 the first vintage was released - 250 cases of estate Cabernet. Philippe Melka became winemaker in 1999, and soon after Teresa and Tom decided to really retire. They sold Vineyard 29 to Churck and Anne McMinn. A new winery was built, caves were dug, and production increased with the purchase of a second vineyard, Aida, planted to Cabernet, Zinfandel, Merlot, and Petit Verdot. From these two vineyards, the estate wines are produced: Vineyard 29 Cabernet Sauvignon, Vineyard 29 Sauvignon Blanc, Aida Red Wine, and Aida Zinfandel.
