There’s black-currant clarity to this clean and luscious cabernet, a blend of Duckhorn’s estate-grown fruit with purchased grapes. The dark fruit is layered with brighter black-raspberry flavor and rich chocolate tones from its time in French oak barrels (50 percent new). Relatively light in weight but saturated in flavor, the wine sustains a lovely mineral tension as it opens with air.
92 Points from James Suckling
Aromas of black olives and currants with hints of flowers and stones. Medium to full body, chewy and fine tannins and a flavorful finish. Shows some tea-leaf and spice undertones. 86% cabernet sauvignon, 8% merlot, 4% petit verdot and 2% cabernet franc. Drink or hold.

Warm plum, blackberry and boysenberry reduction notes glide through, infused with sage, melted licorice and warm tobacco leaf accents. Takes on a gently mulled feel on the fleshy finish. Drink now through 2025.
A classic expression of Napa Valley Cabernet, this wine combines beautiful complexity with rich intensity. Layers of blackberry, huckleberry and black currants are supported by firm, dusty tannins that frame the fruit. On the palate, it is juicy and bright, with luxurious cassis and dark berry flavors supported by notes of fig, cardamom, clove and cracked black pepper that linger on the long, well-structured finish.
Blend: 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot, 2% Cabernet Franc
