2001 - Limited Cabernet Sauvignon

We choose the most expressive lots from an exceptional year to create an age-worthy Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon that exemplifies the vintage.  

Limited Cabernet Sauvignon
Vintage Notes After a dry winter, warm February rains forced early bud break. Unseasonable hot weather in March accelerated growth and made the vines susceptible to hard frosts that came in early April. Bloomtime heat further reduced the crop. After one last heat spell in July, August and September were moderate, even cool, allowing ripening to proceed gradually. Reviews 91 points from Wine Spectator, James Laube, November 15, 2004 issue
