$285.00
JD98

The top wine of the estate, ERA, is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from eight award-winning and historic single vineyards throughout Napa Valley (see single vineyards below). In the words of Jeb Dunnuck, “This wine offers awesome notes of crème de cassis, crushed violets, crushed rocks, hints of mountain scrub brush, and lead pencil shavings. Deep and full-bodied, it has sweet tannins, no hard edges, and a great, great finish.” Very, very limited. Grab it while you can!

Jeb Dunnuck

Only the second time this cuvée has been 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2016 ERA is a blend of all the single vineyards and what Jean considered the best wine. I can’t argue with him. This wine offers awesome notes of crème de cassis, crushed violets, crushed rocks, hints of mountain scrub brush, and lead pencil shavings. Deep and full-bodied, it has sweet tannins, no hard edges, and a great, great finish. There are 900 cases of this brilliant wine which will benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age and cruise for two decades
