    2021 is looking to be one of the vintages of the decade. Vinous Media blessed this year with a 95-98 point score, and said: "Two thousand twenty-one is a fabulous vintage in Napa Valley. That’s the good news. The not so good news is that production is down sharply, 30-50% in many cases. The wines have tremendous energy as well as finesse. In tasting, the 2021s show some of the savory intensity of other drought vintages – 2013 and 2014 come to mind – but with more aromatic explosiveness and greater inner sweetness."

    Aging: 24 months in 60% new French oak

    Tasting Notes: 96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Malbec, 2% Petit Verdot. This wine offers a harmonious balance of rich dark fruit, blackberries, and plums with hints of violet, chocolate, vanilla, and spices with aromatics on the palate. Fined grain tannins frame the velvety mid-palate with a crisp, lingering finish. This wine is well-structured and complex and will perfectly pair with grilled lamb chops.
