"This beautiful, pure stylish wine (85% Cabernet, 10% Merlot, 5% Malbec) has gracefully entered its tenth year of life and is close to maturity, yet it still possesses a dense blue/purple color, medium body, and endearing notes of black raspberries, cherries and graphite. Layered and gracious in the style of a Napa version of a Margaux, this wine can be drunk with great pleasure now or cellared for at least another decade." 95 points. - Robert Parker, June 2013

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
The Poetry Vineyard is the easternmost of our two estate Stags Leap District vineyards, located just a stone’s throw from the winery and the Twin Peaks estate vineyard. The vineyard sits on a high-exposure, west-facing steep hillside below the luxurious Poetry Inn. Reaching from the highest elevation of the Stags Leap Appellation down almost to the valley floor, this vineyard’s heart and soul is a gritty combination of shallow soils atop fractured shales and low-yielding old vines of Cabernet Sauvignon.
Production Notes
Hand harvested into small thirty-five pound boxes, the grapes were destemmed to tank for a two to five day, pre-fermentation cold soak. Selected lots underwent extended maceration to further develop the tannin structure. The free run was separated from the press wine and racked into thin-stave French chateau-style oak barrels (seventy-eight percent of which were new), where the wine was aged for twenty-four months. Final blend is 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, and 5% Malbec.

"...incredibly rich blue fruits, black fruits, a full body, opulent, voluptuously textured and sensational... This is a killer effort, a magnificent wine with a potential three-digit score with a few more years of bottle age"  99 points, RP
