VinRoc 2006 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Hints of spice and dark minerals. Rich and smooth, with finely textured and rounded tannins that coat the mouth and linger long into the finish. Balanced acidity, spice and minerality offer a superb tactile feel. Delicious and bold in its simplicity of dark fruit including black current, blackberry, and black cherry along with other dried dark fruit that are layered over notes of mocha and the cigar box cedar and tobacco found on the nose. Subtle notes of forest and savory spice linger on the palate along with hints of wild berries. Long and lingering with softly fading black fruit that disappear and leaves finely textured tannins and minerality behind. Chappellet 2009 Pritchard Hill Cabernet The most sought-after of all Chappellet wines, this limited-production Cabernet Sauvignon represents the pinnacle of Chappellet winemaking, and embodies the elegant power and complexity of Pritchard Hill winegrowing. Like the great Bordeaux wines that first inspired Donn Chappellet, this wine is crafted by blending Cabernet Sauvignon with other classic Bordeaux varietals. The wine was aged for 20 months in 100 percent new French oak. Grown on rocky, mountainside vineyards, Chappellet Cabernets have consistently displayed an ability to age for several decades. Cornerstone 2008 Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon has been the signature wine of Cornerstone Cellars since their first vintage in 1991. Being one of the most sought after, ultra-premium winegrowing regions in the Napa Valley, this wine reflects their vision of a classic mountain-grown Cabernet Sauvignon. Vintage driven and through individual barrel selection, the Cornerstone Cellars Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon is an expression of the unique mountain climate and distinguished for its immense concentration and powerful structure while retaining a sublime elegance. The principle factor that defines the Cornerstone Cellars Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon is the vineyard source, Ink Grade Vineyard. An organically certified vineyard, Ink Grade is located on the eastern side of Howell Mountain at an elevation of 1800 feet. At this elevation with its steep slopes and volcanic tufa soils, root growth is restricted resulting in Ink Grade Vineyard’s hallmark small berries with intense fruit flavors, structure and robust tannins that makes wines from this vineyard so unique.
