Bordeaux‐like in structure and purity, our 2011 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is both svelte and succulent. In addition to our Nathan Coombs Estate, sourcing for this wine includes Beckstoffer Dr. Crane, Beckstoffer Las Piedras and Stagecoach vineyards. These properties, whose prestige we have helped build, represent the best of Napa Valley. We are able to farm each as our own, via long‐term contracts defined down to the block, row and vine. Aromas include cassis, lavender, fresh crushed sage, black olive and cedar. The generous and savory palate excites with black fig, dark chocolate, tobacco leaf, and graphite. The wine finishes long and pure with an element of fine, damp black clay.
Wine AdvocateThe 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa displays a denser saturated ruby/purple color as well as a pure, spicy bouquet with lots of black currants, medium body and an abrupt, gritty finish. This excellent Cabernet should be drunk in its first 7-8 years of life.
