Napa Cabs from this producer consistently score 94-96 points across the board
This is one explodes from the glass with notes of dark fruit, savory spices, and a hint of oak. On the palate, you get a sense of place with the typical spicy notes indicative of the higher elevation cabernets, with tannins that are neatly integrated for its young age.
The wine saw a significant portion of new French oak and had a nice rest in bottle before its release. This will age gracefully for the next decade+ and at this price, you're going to want to stock up!
Best paired with: Grilled meats or vegetables, hard cheese, and even heavier fish dishes
This is another casualty of unexpected restaurant closures in 2020. This wine was destined for high end, East Coast restaurants, but the winery made a quick pivot and sold the cases to us for a song!
