Wine Tasting Notes
Just as we have come to observe variations in wine style and character among the different villages producing Cabernet Sauvignon in Bordeaux, a study of the Napa Valley will also show a broad range of specific traits we find in wines from the same variety. The earthy richness of Rutherford Cabernet, for example, is a dramatic contrast to the bright minerality of the fruit grown in the hills east of St. Helena. The soft texture and floral aromas of Oakville differ from the attractive suppleness of Howell Mountain. Just as the charm we find in wines made from different terroirs in the Medoc, we now see and appreciate the differences from grapes grown throughout our complex valley. This wine has a rich, dark color coupled with a vibrant fruit aroma, and as frequently occurs in low yield vintages, a comforting softness that makes it immediately attractive.
