This Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of Bourassa's most prized vineyards from three distinct growing regions: Tulocay, Oak Knoll and Yountville.
"Dense ruby in color, rich raspberry and hints of chocolate and blackberry fruit flavors fill the palette with smoky toasted oak in the background. There is a smooth vanilla sweetness present to round out the finish." -- Gary Galleron, winemaker
88 Points, Wine Enthusiast:
"Shows the ripeness and soft tannins of Napa Cabernet, but also firmer acidity than many, which gives it a good grip that’s food-friendly. The flavors of cherries, blackberries, currants, cassis and dark chocolate are accented by oak. This stylish young Cab will be best over the next five years. S.H." (11/1/2007)
82 Points, Wine Spectator:
"Firm currant, cassis and spice notes take on cola and savory flavors on the finish. Drink now. 500 cases made. –MW" (11/15/2007)
