POE mostly focuses on Pinot Noir production, owing to the founding winemaker’s reverence for the wines of Burgundy and Champagne. An affection that seems to influence her Napa Cabernet as well, with a restrained use of oak and minimal intervention in the winery.

There’s a lovely tension in this wine, a refreshing version of Cabernet when so many renderings of this ubiquitous varietal verge on brazen. We get violets and currants on the nose, with brambly berries and black pepper on the palate, juicy acidity, and silky tannins.
