Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 95

The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon may be even better than the 2004. A striking, inky/ruby/purple color offers up notes of black currants, licorice, graphite, forest floor, and spice box. Flawlessly constructed with sweet tannin, good acidity, and superb purity, this is a tour de force in winemaking. Possessing both elegance and authoritative flavors, it should drink effortlessly for two decades.

Shows a polished nose of blueberry and blackberry. Exquisite smoothness on the palate with velvet-like tannin, licorice and currant

Wine Spectator | Rating: 88

Firm and chunky, a bit rustic, dry and herbal, with mineral, dried currant, sage and cedary oak flavors that finish with a tight yet clipped edge. 500 cases made.

About This Producer


Rob Winter is a custom-home builder who came to Napa Valley to construct a home for a client. He fell in love with the area and, in the course of working on his project, met several winemakers and growers who helped influence his decision to not only move to the Valley but also to produce his own wine. He has hired Helen Mawson of Hundred Acre, previously at Vineyard 29, to be his winemaker. The first vintage was 2004. Production is under 300 cases.

Wine Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon


Cabernet Sauvignon is perhaps the world's best known red variety, with its full-bodied, intense profile. An offspring of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, it is the primary grape of Bordeaux's Left Bank (Medoc and Graves regions) and the Napa Valley, but can be found growing all over the world. Typical descriptors for Cabernet Sauvignon are cassis, cedar, mint, black pepper, eucalyptus, and pencil lead.
