Ulysses 2012 is full of ripe red cherry, wild flowers and exceptional depth. Layers of spice notes and savory herbs add lift to the finish. A wine of great aging potential.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon, which was aged for 17 months in 45% new French oak, is a blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. The wine is dense purple, with sweet cedar wood, unsmoked cigar tobacco, crème de cassis, and black raspberries in a classic, almost St.-Julien/Pauillac style. This emerged from a valley floor vineyard on the west side of Napa, where Christian Moueix told me that 2014 was characterized by generally slightly higher than average temperatures for the summer with only minor heat spikes in June and July. August and September went off without a hitch, and the harvest took place during the month of September. This full-bodied wine will hit its peak in 3-5 years and last for 25-30.

Wine SpectatorThe warmed dark currant, bitter plum and blackberry paste flavors are enhanced by light tobacco, singed alder and loam accents. The tobacco note asserts itself through the finish, with the fruit content in reserve for now. Shows sneaky acidity, and would benefit from some cellaring. Best from 2022 through 2032. 1,400 cases made.
