Tasting Notes:

Consistently powerful yet stylish
cabernet-based wine from a spectacular
property on volcanic ash soil in the eastern
hills of Rutherford, above the Auberge du
Soleil resort. Sexy, perfumed aromas and
flavors of cassis, black raspberry, violet,
minerals, bitter chocolate and tobacco,
energized and intensified by firm acidity.
Tightly wound and gripping wine.

Martha McClellan was
the winemaker for
Estate prior to joining

. She lived in
Germany for 10 years,
while there, she studied
and earned a degree in
oenology as well as in
viticulture.  She is an avid
marathon runner, of
small stature, over
achiever, driven and
thrives for perfection. It
took her a little while to
warm up to us and feel
comfortable in our
conversation but when
she did,  she was
charming, passionate
and articulate.  
Highly Recommended,
one of my all time favorites.
