The only site not in Oakville is the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Amoenus Vineyard from Calistoga. It possesses the lowest alcohol, 14.1%, of these three offerings. Displaying none of the rusticity or gritty tannins often found in fruit from the Calistoga AVA, it offers wonderful suppleness, blackberry and forest floor notes, medium to full body, and a rich, pure style that is still young and unevolved.

Tiers of dark chocolate, black currants, violets and cedar mark this wonderfully rich young Cabernet, which contains a drop of Malbec that brings an animal note. The wine is almost black at the center and very tannic, suggesting ageability. *Cellar Selection* (12/2013)

Pure, rich, dense and layered, with dark berry, pomegranate and boysenberry notes, accented by cedar and crushed rock details. Shows impressive power and finesse on the finish, where the flavors linger, ending with a dash of dill. (JL) (2/2014)
Stored on its side in a climate controlled cellar since purchase.
