Monday, January 6, 2014 - Had over two nights.
This wine is inky purple. On the first night there was so much oak showing on the nose. And something slightly weird. I could not put my finger on it. On the second night the weird thing was gone. Smells like a big oaky Napa Cab. Very nice. This is a big style done right. Lots of dark fruit but also a great red berry thing happening. A touch of eucalyptus. The acid and relative lightness on the palate make this work. Not a style I could drink on a regular basis but sometimes it hits to spot. Tonight was one of those nights.
