Get the new release while it's available! 95 Points Robert Parker:  "This is a brilliant wine from this well-placed vineyard in Rutherford, sitting right on the so-called Rutherford Bench, with a history of vines having been planted there as far back as 1880. There are 2,646 cases of this wine, which is a blend of 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Petit Verdot that was aged 21 months in 85% new French oak. It is a big wine (15.3% natural alcohol) but shows no heat or hotness whatsoever. Dense purple to the rim, it offers a stunning nose of loamy soil, scorched earth, blackberry and black cherry with some allspice, clove and subtle oak. Hitting the palate, it’s clear the wine has great intensity, a full-bodied mouthfeel, superb richness and moderate tannin. A classic 2013 as well as a classic wine from Rutherford, it should be given 4-5 years of cellaring and drunk over the following 30 years."

Excellent Napa Cabernet, really well rounded and balanced on the palate. It’s dark purple in the glass and the nose is classic dark fruit, leather and pipe tobacco. There are some great floral notes on this as well with lavender of course but a surprising rose flavor in the mix. I really enjoyed this and it got better as the evening progressed. Day 2 held up nicely and just really enjoyable.
