WINEMAKER: The legendary Celia Welch
PERSONALITY: Celia Welch awards:

- 2006, Forbes.com “Top Ten Tastemaker”
- Inducted Winemaker’s Hall of Fame
AVA DESIGNATED: Oakville, Napa Valley
WHAT WE TASTED: The aromas on this collection‐worthy flagship wine are forward and intense, showing blueberry, marionberry, cranberry, a hint of rhubarb and raspberry. The entry is balanced, soft yet solid. The finish is dense and structural though not coarse. Flavors at the finish show spiced plum, citrus zest, and a sweet earthy note, all wrapped in very fine-grained tannins that deliver the age-worthiness of this more weighty Cabernet.
WHAT WE PAIRED:
- Prime Rib, horseradish mashed potatoes, broccoli rabe
- Wild mushroom omelette, bacon wrapped figs, green salad with shaved truffle cheese
- Petite filet, blue cheese compound butter
- Pan-seared eye of rib, sauce béarnaise (dining out Bouchon)
- Insta pot turkey bolognese with Marzano tomato sauce, garlic and truffle salt
- Aged 20 months in 70% new French oak
- Organically farmed vineyard
