    100% Cabernet Sauvignon, 50% from the Rocca-Collinetta Vineyard in Coombsville, and 50% sourced from the Rockledge Vineyard in St. Helena. First impressions on the nose are chocolate, cassis and blackberry. With a few minutes, the chocolate settles and the fruit profile becomes slightly more red and tart, amplified by an elevated perceived acidity. Stylistically, the Napa Valley fruit is center-stage, but it does not crowd the picture. The big story in this wine is the impact of 100% new French Oak. With time, it shows sweet clove, spice and cedar woodiness; later, smoke, cigar box and a thin layer of coconut come forward. The tannins are fine and unobtrusive for a young Cabernet Sauvignon. The palate is expressive and the finish is long. Drink now through 2030.
