7 barrel (168 case) production Cabernet from myriad prime-time Napa vineyards. (Vineyard names not to be disclosed!) The winemaker is Benoit Touquette (Protégé of Michel Rolland and Andy Erickson. He makes, amongst others, Realm Cellars wines.)
16% Cabernet Franc & 4% Petit Verdot in the blend. This is one of those Cabs that as soon as I taste it, I know "it's got it." The it is the rich, super-concentrated, dark berry/cherry dominated flavor and luxurious, cashmere-like texture that makes one go WOW. Smell and taste black cherry liqueur, melted dark chocolate, anise, espresso, buttered cinnamon toast. Case purchase worthy if this is in your price comfort zone. Short window of availability.
