2017 Atlas Vineyard Cabernet, $175

Single vineyard 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the eastern foothills of Calistoga

"...huge center of fruit and tremendous intensity, the Atlas captures all of the layers of nuance… What a gorgeous wine this." Antonio Galloni

Floral and perfumed with lifted red currant, raspberry, dried herb, black olive and black cherry flavors. Powerful, dense, rich. Multi-layered range of flavors covering dark fruit, tobacco, roasted meat, bacon, vanilla and anise. Turns toward roasted blueberries and bitter sweet-cocoa, peppercorn and baking spice on the complex, layered finish. Incredible for its combination of power, density and dark fruit flavors over a fresh, bright, structured core.

2017 Melanson Cabernet, $175

100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Melanson vineyard on Pritchard Hill.

An incredible, unique and explosive nose of licorice, boysenberry, grilled strawberry, fig and floral blueberry aromas lead to a super lush, rich core of fruit, herb and mineral flavors. Extraordinarily complex range of flavors pushes through a long mouthwatering finish capped by plush tannins. Flavors of strawberry, mint, fresh cherries, vanilla, sandalwood and brioche linger endlessly. Delicious to drink now and certain to be even more extraordinary in 5 years.

2017 Social Currency 1.5L, $495

An investment towards the future, a lifelong memory in the making.

"...polished, refined and impeccable in its balance" Antonio Galloni

Classic but also utterly hedonistic aromatics of black currant, sweet tobacco and exotic spices. Luxurious, and concentrated in the mouth with an initial wave of plush texture pushing black berry, black cherry, cocoa and coriander flavors over a concentrated frame of silky tannin. Super long and multi-layered this is a fantastic blend of opulence and grace – true to Social Currency. Approachable now with decanting but has a long life ahead.

2017 TEN Cabernet, $95

A valley floor expression of two Cabernet vineyards in St Helena and Rutherford.

A remarkable TEN – leads with dark berry, dried fig, stone and spice notes. Big and powerful in the mouth with a huge dense core of dried cherry, liquid stone, fig compote, cocoa, mineral and spice all framed by beautiful tannins. Powerful and intense but also intricate and layered. Really impressive. This vintage of the TEN will improve with some years in the cellar – or 3-4 hours in the decanter prior to serving.

2017 Napa Valley Cabernet, $95

Our flagship Cabernet Sauvignon from a select few hillside vineyards.

Dark, powerful and richly textured with a lush foundation of fruit, the 2017 Napa Valley Cabernet is one of my favorites to date. Layered and complex, it is a great representation of the heights that the 2017 vintage was capable of.  Shows a remarkable, seamless build-up of intensity from entry through the finish, coating the palate with complex layers of flavor and powerful but silky structure. Suave and detailed, with flavors of blackberry, fresh dark cherry, currant, dried fig, cracked pepper and dried herbs. Background notes of graphite, espresso, baking cocoa and plum lead to the long finish where dark fruit, hints of mineral, baking spice and mocha linger. Sophisticated fine-grained tannins. Exceptional for its combination of freshness, intensity, complexity. Beautifully balanced and drinking well now – but best with some time in the cellar (5-20 years) or decant an hour before enjoying.

2018 Rose, $38

Rose of Cabernet Sauvignon.

Bright fresh aromas of citrus, light watermelon and strawberry with background notes of mineral and herb. Complex flavors carry through on the palate where the texture turns velvety and finishes with intriguing notes of dried herbs and citrus rind. Long, crisp and refreshing – the complexity, brightness and range of flavors will make this a favorite both at the table and poolside!

2017 Zen Master

" explosive wine endowed with tremendous personality and character." (93-96)

2017 Custodian, $150

An outstanding follow up to the 2017 Custodian, this vintage is even more thrilling. Complex aromas – mint, black cherry compote, dried sage and cola lead to a deep, rich and unique palate of flavors and texture. A powerful, lush and silky core shows off an amazing range of dark berry, Provencal herbs, baking cocoa, mineral and spice flavors that come in seductive waves over the palate. Killer wine - supple, powerful core, complex flavors and plush tannin. Drink with decanting or cellar 5-20 years.

2017 Oakville Ranch Cab Franc, $195

Cabernet Franc from the Oakville Ranch vineyard in the east hills of Oakville

"...vibrant and pulsing with energy, the 2017 captures the interplay of richness and energy that the best wines from this site are capable of." Antonio Galloni

Bright, lively and energetic with a racy core of dark raspberry and cassis with a background of mint, sweet tobacco, stone, graphite and plum, layered over tightly coiled but plush tannins. Truly a unique Cabernet Franc that is totally expressive of the Oakville Ranch Vineyard. Super long, complex and delicious with uncommon freshness and power. Remarkable balance of brightness and acidity in concert with richness, concentration and power. So delicious….

2017 Moulds Vineyard Cabernet, $165

100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Moulds Family vineyard in Oak Knoll

"...inky, dense and voluptuous…. a racy, inviting wine that is going to be impossible to resist, even young." Antonio Galloni

Wow! Unreal aromatics, powerful and multifaceted – like cherries covered in dark chocolate and delicately seasoned with thyme and rose petal.  Utterly delicious in the mouth, opulent but also structured, with black cherry, liquid stone, dark chocolate, dried thyme, sage and violets leading to a powerfully structured yet sumptuous finish. An exceptional vintage of Moulds that is delicious now and will drink well for two+ decades.

2018 Sauvignon Blanc, $48

From two vineyards, one in Rutherford and one in Pope Valley.

Seductive sweet cream, white peach, citrus blossom and golden straw aromas and flavors lead to a rich, creamy mid-palate with bright refreshing acidity on the finish. Flavors range from lemon to citrus rind and finish with a beautiful citrus blossom note. Long, fresh, complex and deeply flavorful.
