"The seventh offering of The ONE John Anthony Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley is from fruit harvested on the steep, rocky, hillside terrain of Twisted Oak Vineyard. A notable expression of tension and balance in this vintage with ethereal aromatics and nuanced fruit and spice. The flavors are pure with black and red fruit notes, wild berry intensity, and framed by red stone fruit and savory herbs. Boysenberry, black raspberry, and cassis mingle with cocoa dust, bay leaf, tarragon, dried leather and wet gravel, finishing with vanilla and baking spice undertones. The palate is focused with subtle power noted for the vintage. It evolves and expands with dusty tannins that broaden as the fruit opens to expressive tertiary flavors. The acid is the pillar of The ONE’s framework and implies cellaring potential for up to 25 years."

An uneventful and easy growing season until mid-October rainstorms. Caramel and golden tones are perfumed with ripe passionfruit, baked lychee and framed by beeswax and toasted vanilla bean. Flavors of warm mango, tangerine marmalade, gingersnap and sumac have a bright energy and blossom with aeration.
A wet winter and spring, surprising June and mid-October showers made this vintage one of the wettest in recent history. Honey colored with fragrances of sweet orange blossom and pear mingle with honeysuckle and grains of paradise. The flavors are deep and rich with orange crème brulée and caramelized nectarine, butterscotch and marzipan.
Flooding rains early in the growing season with cool temperature October showers. Amber in color with notes of pineapple upside down cake and coconut chips, baking-spiced butter and dried, white flowers on the nose. Intense flavors of dried apricot, baked guava, toasted macadamia and black cardamom.
Fog and cool temperatures late into September. The copper hue showcases the wine’s graceful aging while aromas of baked Fuji apple and candied Mission fig, white truffle and linseed imply enhanced complexity from the cellar. Peach preserves and ripe tropical fruit flavors comingle with dried sweet herbs and juniper.
