Wine AdvocateThe Napa Cabernet Sauvignon is more limited in availability than the Alexander Valley, but there are now close to 33,000 cases being produced. The 2001 (31,430 cases of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot) offers a big, smoky, herb, black currant, tobacco, spice box, and barbecue spice-scented bouquet, and broad, medium to full-bodied, concentrated, sweet, jammy flavors with plenty of sexy, toasty American oak in the background. It is a hedonistic fleshpot of a wine to drink now and over the next 10-12 years.
Wine SpectatorNotable for its smoky coconut, vanilla bean and wood aromas, the currant and herb notes work in well with the wood on the palate, ending with a dry chicory aftertaste. Drink now through 2012. 30,000 cases made.
