Our finest expression of the vintage, the 2011 Platinum Reserve exhibits the elegant, debonair flair of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Rich, dark fruit aromas unfold with hints of violet, black plum, cassis, and cedar. The cooler vintage offers distinctive mineral and graphite notes that weave through the aromas and flavors. Bold and serious, the palate delivers density and texture with concentrated blackberry, cedar and cloves, joined by mouthcoating tannins. The rich profile is complemented by a splash of Petite Verdot, which lends depth and lovely floral notes, and Malbec, for a youthful pop and bright aromatics.
