Professional Reviews For This Wine

purely domestic wine report | Rating: 96

shows truffle, licorice and spice with a bit of herb in the nose with a dense and polished palate of dark richness. There is lots of texture on the finish with delicious and harmonious balance. The finish is chocolate mole and a bit of graphite.

The nose is full of an unbelievable amount of sun-warmed mountain blackberry, vibrant cassis and cherry.The palate begins with a loamy smoothness that continues to develop more underlying complexity with air.During my 45 minutes of tasting, essences of beautifully polished kirsch-like cherry, allspice, blue plum, vanilla and blueberry emerge to weave across the palate. Production is 235 cases and is primarily to mailing list only.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 94

Rich and expressive, with ripe, potent, concentrated tiers of spicy currant, fresh earth, mineral, sage and dried berry flavors that are tight, focused and concentrated, ending with a long, persistent finish.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 94

Although extremely limited in availability, the 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon boasts an inky/ruby/purple color as well as gorgeous aromas of cedar, spice box, black currants, licorice, and a touch of wood spice. Medium to full-bodied with silky tannins, superb concentration, and a beautiful texture, this impressive St.-Julien-styled Napa Cabernet should drink well for 20+ years.

About This Producer

Ron and Anita Wornick purchased the last un-developed parcel from the original Meadowood development in 1995 and began the nearly decade-long process of clearing the rocks from what would eventually be their home and vineyard. The winery gets its name from a granite slab sculture that is the focal point of the compound.The first vines were planted in 1995 and the premiere release of the David Abreu-developed property is 2005. Wornick's background is in food science and his company was selected by the US military to produce the MRE (Meals, Ready to Eat) that revolutionized food delivery in the field. Additionally, over the last thirty years he and Anita have developed one of the most important contemporary craft collections in the world. The winemaking team is Aaron Pott, assisted by Roy Piper.

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.
