2010 The Assassin Cabernet Sauvignon
The excellent fruit, sourced from two meticulous Napa growers, gave us everything we needed to create this classic cabernet. The resulting blend exceeded even our own high expectations. The wine was aged for 24 months in French oak, using 50% new and 50% neutral barrels. This is a structured and complex wine, exhibiting dark fruit flavors with vanilla, espresso and and cigar box notes. We bottle aged the wine for an additional 30 months so it is ready to drink now but with only 50 cases produced, we would encourage cellaring for a special occasion.
