Critical Acclaim: 91 pts Antonio Galloni's Vinous.
Tasting Notes: The Cabernet Sauvignon Casey’s Lakeview is similarly inky bluish/purple to the rim. Tasting like blood, this wine is dense and rich with lots of chocolate, espresso, earth and spice. It is deep, full-bodied, and again, a masculine style of wine that needs at least 4-5 years of cellaring and should keep for 25 or more years.
About the Winery: Situated in the northwest corner of the Valley on an extension of Diamond Mountain, it was once home to the Heritage School for Boys. Today it is a diverse 48-acre property with 6 acres of vineyards and pays homage to its rich history. They produce premium 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Calistoga AVA. The wines from these vineyards perfectly reflect the diverse terroir of the property and are some of the most expressive and collectible Cabernet Sauvignon produced in Napa Valley.
Winemaker: Thomas River Brown
Varietal: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.
