Kevin Carriker started out in a wine store in San Francisco, making his way via some Napa and Bordeaux wineries where he did everything from working the tasting room, cleaning and topping barrels to participating in the harvest. In 1990 he worked a crush at Grgich Hills and from here he decided it was time for the big leagues. In 1994 he made his first wine and in 1998 he purchased the Coombsville property. With the help of “ace winemaker” Mark Herold he has been producing killer Cabs for years. Mark does not need any intro, but for those who don’t know him, he worked at Phelps, Hestan before creating Merus (he sold this years ago) and becoming the full-time winemaker at Kamen in 2001 where he has made amazing high-scoring wines and of course his own well-regarded Mark Herold label.

Robert Parker 95 Points: “Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is profoundly scented of black cherries, warm blackberries, black plums and licorice with touches of cedar chest, Indian spices and dark chocolate. Medium to full-bodied, rich, opulent and full-on seductive with its plush tannins, layered ripe fruits and exotic spices, it finishes long and perfumed.”
