Complex, delicious, maturing Napa Cab with aromas of cassis, blueberry, spice cupboard, black cherry and toasty oak. Dry with pleasingly maturing fruit and resolved tannins. Very tasty with plenty of power and life still. It will provide pleasure tonight with grilled steaks. (VINTAGES panel, Aug. 2012)

Gently pressed from grapes planted, grown and tended by PB himself on the Hein family ranch in the Deer Park area of St.Helena (just below Howell Mountain).

Velevety and full bodied; a medium rich Cabernet with a distinctive nose, and flavors of black currant, cherry, toast, and spicy oak. Long, mildly tannic finish.

GOLD MEDAL WINNER at 2009 and 2010 SF Chronicle Wine Competitions.

This wine is made with 100% estate grown Cabernet Sauvignon grapes with maturation taking place in new French oak for 26 months and alcohol coming in at 14.5%. This wine is from a small boutique winery that only produced 293 cases of this Cabernet.
This Cabernet opened up with exquisite maturing aromas of dark cherry and plum, black currants, toasty with peppery-sandalwood notes. On the mouthfeel, medium-full bodied, rich, velvety texture with balance acidity and chewy tannins. This wine finish is very long, creamy with soft seductive fruit flavours, vanilla, gentle wood spices and light tannins lingering.
A superb, very tasty California Cabernet where the extra cellaring and the quality work at the vineyard paid big dividends for the consumer, strongly recommended. Planning to buy a few more bottles before they all disappear, Enjoy on December 28, 2012.
