2006 Cabernet Sauvignon 'Cyrus Ryan', 1.5L
Napa Valley

The wine exhibits a beautiful purple core and medium ruby rim with intense dark currant, black cherry and raspberry black olive on the nose. In addition, there is deep graphite minerality as well as cooking chocolate. Upon tasting the body is full and viscous, and the deep dark chocolate becomes really apparent. This is matched by blackberry and pencil lead. The chalky tannins are tighter than the 2005; the wine all around is firmer, with a long wild berry finish. The structure of this wine will demand a minimum of 3 years aging but should continue to age gracefully over the next 10-12 years.

 Rattlesnake Hill Cabernet Sauvignon ~ Spring Mountain District
2011 Rattlesnake Hill Cabernet Sauvignon
Spring Mountain District

Intensely dark purple in color this vintage the wine is big and very concentrated. Aromas of raspberries and vanilla bean are complemented by dark chocolate and licorice. Layers of allspice, clove and cassis are also apparent. Upon tasting the wine is very viscous with darker fruit flavors to match the vanilla and pure black peppercorn emerges. The tannins are quite firm with great acidity to back it up. Although some bottle bouquet will begin to develop after ten years this is an ager, for those with patience this wine will progress gracefully for the next 20 years (2033).

 Spring Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon, 1.5L ~ Spring Mountain District
2010 Spring Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon, 1.5L
Spring Mountain District

Dark purple in its youth the 2010 Spring Mountain Cabernet has an immediate core of pure black fruit, mostly Cassis and Blackberry. Full fennel/black licorice and crushed violets are also prevalent. The dark mountain earth minerality is balanced by sweet vanilla bean aromatics from the oak. The wine is quite plush with concentrated raspberry and more gravel mineral tones on the palette. The tannins this year are very firm, with natural mountain acid to balance demanding some time in the bottle to show its best.

 Cyrus Ryan Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon ~ Napa Valley
2010 Cyrus Ryan Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon
Napa Valley

With its deep purple core this wine is immediately bursting with Blackberry and blueberry tart. Sweet vanilla spice and cinnamon toast are balanced by the subtle graphite and crushed floral elements. This is an extremely lush wine with cherry compote and milk chocolate on the mid palette. The moderately chalky tannins are balanced by the restrained acidity. Although surprisingly appealing in its youth, this wine will benefit from 10-11 years of bottle age (2022-2023).

 Rattlesnake Hill Cabernet Sauvignon, 1.5L ~ Spring Mountain District
2010 Rattlesnake Hill Cabernet Sauvignon, 1.5L
Spring Mountain District

Rich in color the 2010 Rattlesnake Hill is powerful and layered on the nose. Aromatics of fennel, black earth and black tea are wrapped in sweet dark chocolate, blackberry and concentrated vanilla. A whole kitchen cabinet of spices begins to emerge, chiefly nutmeg and cinnamon. The mouthfeel is silky and opulent. On the palette concentrated cassis gives way to cedar and graphite while the chalky tannins begin to emerge. Black fruit and cocoa linger on the finish for a long time. This vintage will show wonderfully after 15-16 years (2027-2028), but will hold much longer for those with patience.
