Opening with a sultry mix of dark cherries, smooth chocolate mingled with tobacco leaves, creosote and crushed stone, this wine is as generous and giving as it is elegant and sophisticated. On the palate, ripe red fruits, cracked black pepper, exotic spices and graphite complete this vibrant, complex and expressive wine. We believe that it is the length of the finish that takes a good wine to an extraordinary one and silky tannins continue to tell this wine's story long after the last sip is taken.

Wine AdvocateThe flagship wine, the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Vineyard 29 Estate, is an extraordinary effort. Performing even better than it did last year from barrel, this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon spent 20 months in French oak barrels (90% new). The nose reveals notes of graphite, ink, cassis, and flowers. Superbly concentrated with impeccable purity and balance, this full-bodied wine is one of both power and elegance. If I didn't know better, I would guess it was from Stags Leap rather than the west side north of St. Helena ... it's that refined and gracious. The stunning length and suppleness of the tannin suggest this 2007 should easily last for 20-25 years.
