Vineyard 29 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon (St. Helena)

Cellar Selection

Yes, it's a lot of money for a bottle of wine, and yes, it's stunning. From the famous Philippe Melka, this 100% Cab pours inky black, and smells dramatically oaked. No surprise that it's 100% new French barrels. But the underlying wine is massive in blackberry, cherry, mocha, lavender and thyme, just gigantically proportioned, and easily able to handle all that wood. Beautiful now, it's a keeper. Drink now–2018.
