"A stunning example of the winery's prowess over the past four decades. It has everything, and everything is in balance, making it a Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon of uncommon harmony. On the nose this vintage exhibits aromas of ripe cassis and wood-spice. On the palate it is seamless and inviting, with layers of rich dark fruits, silky tannins and a lasting finish." WRO 96

Gifted a taste by a friend. Trying this immediately after the Chateau Montelena shows the differences between Calistoga and Oak Knoll, with this being more vegetal and "harder" on the nose. There's less sweetness and more of a ripe character, and that transfers onto the palate as well, with a juicy bell pepper and underripe raspberry quality showing forth. It's a beautiful wine made in a masculine cabernet style.

This 2012 isn't showing as well as the 2011 at this stage. Tannins are still fierce. Needs time in bottle

Hints of cherry and chocolate. So smooth with a Cajun filet mignon.
