This has come together nicely since I tasted it last a couple of years ago. Rich, round fruit flavors, and great balance.

Fantastic aromas of dark fruits, fresh forest floor and truffles wafting through the room as it awakens during the two hour decant. Garnet in color with long legs, full body includes tastes of dark fruit with a hint of cinnamon, expresso, black pepper; well integrated tannins and a mouth watering silky texture that provided a very long finish. Exceptional wine.

Subdued; not a big showy cabernet. Probably needs some time and more air than I gave it. Nice wine, but I will give it a couple years before opening another bottle.

Decanted and consumed over 2 hrs. Nice nose of fresh herb and dark fruit, which carried over to the palate. Nicely integrated tannins, but still quite tight. Medium-full bodied. Very well-balanced and should age well.

This deep-to-opaque ruby wine was kindly provided by Ken J. It was decanted and serially tasted over approximately two hours. The nose continued to evolve during this time frame, showing aromas of cassis, minerals, potpourri and vanilla. Full-bodied on the palate, with low acidity, big sweet tannins, well-integrated alcohol (listed as 14.7%) and black fruit/mineral flavors. The middle palate is solid and the mouth texture is silky. Long, smooth finish. This is a beautiful example of Napa Cabernet which, while drinking well already, will likely pick up complexity with some additional bottle ageing. It may ultimately warrant a higher score. Drink now-12/25.

Tasted at the winery, from bottle. Closer in style to Chateau Montelena and less opulent than most of Heidi's wines, this is very elegant and restrained. Nose was a bit closed at first, but just got better and better as it opened up. Great velvety mouthfeel with precise balance, and a very long finish. Still very young, it feels like this should age well for at least 10 to 15 years. Highly recommended.
