Dark deep crimson color. Intense and intoxicating fragrance of dark cherries and rose petals. Deep, massive red currant flavors balanced by lively acidity. The wine exhibits fresh fruit characteristics with a bold mid palate and elegant tannins. Shows the complexity of a Bordeaux from a warmer vintage. This is another amazing effort from a producer that never disappoints. 94+ points from me!
Winemaker: Rolando Herrera (from Mi Sueño)
Eleadoro Hernandez and his wife, Noemi, came to the Napa Valley 1982. They moved to St Helena where Eleadoro began working with his Uncle, Fernando. Fernando introduced Eleadoro to John Caldwell shortly after John began planting his Vineyard there in the Coomsville area. He worked with John in the planting and development of these vineyards and eventually became the Vineyard manager. Shortly after leaving the Caldwell ranch, Eleadoro leased 25 acres of land in the Napa Valley on Big Ranch Road and began to plant a 6 or 7 acres a year. Today he has planted a total of 33 acres of Cabernet in that Oak Knoll area . He has sold grapes from this vineyard to world famous Caymus Vineyards and Phelps (for Insignia!).
