Clear deep ruby color with a fuchsia rim. The wine yields aromas of cassis, black and red cherry, and a whiff of herbs above bass notes of coffee. It smells like deep velvet. On the palate it's nimble and lithe, with supple savory dark fruits and beautifully ripe tannins lingering beneath brilliant acidity. The finish is bitter, like well-made coffee. Overall this wine feels spirited, both elegant and unencumbered. It's the best California Cabernet Sauvignon I've had in too long a while. 14.7% abv. | $60 | 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot, 3% Cabernet Franc, 1% Merlot | 21 mos. in French oak (60% new) | certified organic and Biodynamic | sample

For not being a huge fan of Zins, this is smooth but hot! Overall this is pretty mouth watering. I'm flushed off of one sip.

Deep, velvety, dark chocolate, vanilla, coffee and goes on and on. Drinks way above it's price. Outstanding!

Well-balanced fruit and oak. A little pinch of tart on the back-end of a smooth and lingering finish. Quintessential expression of a Napa Cab.
