92 Points by The Wine Advocate.

Acclaim:

Beautiful blueberry, white flowers, black and red currants, as well as some incense and camphor jump from the glass of this stunningly proportioned, complex wine. The mouthfeel is medium to full-bodied with superb purity, enticing texture and oodles of beautiful ripe fruit that cascade over the palate. I think of it as a gracious and somewhat restrained, but authoritative Napa Red." Robert Parker, Wine Advocate.

Tasting Notes:

The fruit for Profile was handpicked in the early morning and triple sorted. The grapes were gravity-fed into small fermenters and on the skins for an average 0f 22 days.The wine underwent malolactic fermentation, was racked twice, and aged 20 months in French oak barrels. Aromas of violet, plum, black cherry, cassis, nutmeg, vanilla, dark chocolate, and the impression of minerality. Palate is restrained by Napa standards, but still full bodied and round, with all the color, depth, and persistence one expects from Profile.

Blend:

78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Malbec, 10% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc.

Cellaring:

This wine must be decanted in its youth, and with proper cellaring it will age for 10-15 years and beyond.
