From a valley-floor site off of the Silverado Trail just north of St. Helena, this Cab is a departure for the producer, based atop Spring Mountain. The flavors are ripe and jammy in raspberry and blackberry, almost liqueur-like, before finding balance in tangerine-tart acidity. With firm, chalky tannins providing backbone, the finish is sprinkled in black cherry and caramel.
