"Lot 49. Somewhat pale ruby with an even paler rim. Light, almost ethereal nose. Really very delicate indeed but beautifully balanced. Just dances around the palate. It would be a clever taster who immediately recognised this as Napa Valley as it is just SO unlike the stereotype. A gritty mineral finish even though there is very little tannin in evidence. Bone-dry finish. Light-bodied. 18/20 points."
Vinous Reverie Notes
One of the great and most famous Napa Valley vineyards, producing fruit with an abundance of supple red and black berry character, voluptuous perfume and a luscious, fine-grained texture. The 66-acre vineyard is planted primarily to Cabernet Sauvignon with 1.5 acres of Cabernet Franc. The soil is a combination of fine Bale gravelly clay loam and volcanic alluvium.
