    December 10, 2015 - Saturated magenta color. A bit opaque.
    Ripe mixed berries and black cherry paste on the nose with fennel and baking spices. Very focused and clean.
    Rich dark berries and black cherry on the palate, baking spices, a little licorice and an astringent orange rind on the finish. Plush mouthfeel to match the rich fruit.
    If you love the stereotypical big Napa experience this is your wine! Rich fruit with enough acidity for balance, wears the 14.9% alcohol very well, terrific to drink aline of with fruit and cheese. Just tastes great!

    December 26, 2014 - Amazing complex nose, beautifully smooth and elegant despite the 14.9% alcohol. A pleasure and wish I had more
