A super-premium Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon from Bressler, a small family vineyard on the west side of St. Helena. This gorgeous wine luxuriates in new French oak for over 2 years, imparting spices of clove and cedar as well as the sweetness of vanilla bean to the silky, ample fruit. Only 400 cases produced.
Notes from Winemaker Mia Klein: Primary aromas include freshly roasted coffee, bittersweet chocolate and graphite with plum eau de vie and raspberry as well. With a little time in the glass, subtle caramel and vanilla characters surface along with a hint of sandalwood. Initially the palate is very measured and long with a structured and seamless texture. With a bit of air from decanting, the flavors, length and texture all intensify to make the wine quite irresistible.
