A fantastic small-production Napa Valley Cabernet. One of our top picks from the great 2010 vintage. previous vintage 93 Points Robert Parker: "The real deal. Super-ripe but with impressive underlying acidity and structure, the wine has notes of charcoal, roasted herbs, tapenade, black currant, licorice, and camphor. It is deep, full-bodied, rich, with good acidity and sweet tannin. Drink it over the next 10-15 years. This source for Cabernet Sauvignon was made famous by well-known wine consultant and winemaker David Ramey when he was sourcing fruit from this site. They now estate-bottle their own wines, and this is a cuvee of around 400 cases made from 76% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot and Cabernet Franc." Winemaker Aaron Pott puts it best: "Jericho Canyon is poised to become one of the great estates of Napa Valley. It is a dragon slumbering in its cave atop a horde of treasure that is about to be awakened and unleashed."
Solid juice. Funny people talking about brooding with a profile pic and a cigar. Solid cab. Nose is right on. Mouth feel is on the Heinz 47 side. Tongue weight a plenty.
