We had this bottle along side an 02 Pride cab reserve. The 02 Claret is drinking very well. Very smooth and plush. Notes of vanilla and cedar. I believe it needs a minimum of 60 minutes decanting before drinking. This is a very well made wine.
One of the best wines I have had this year that is under $150 per bottle. Go out and get this and drink it. Well worth the money.
We had this wine at Press in Napa on July. I have been holding onto this wine for a while and was eager to drink and had no real expectations. We let this wine decant for 1 hour along with an 02 Araujo cab. I honestly thought I was drinking an 82 Margaux. Why don't they make Napa wine like this any more. Very impressive. Very earthly, smooth, and a little green like. It was a pleasure to drink this wine. This is one of the best wines I have ever consumed. For sure the best Napa wine I have tasted.
I believe this is drinking very nice now and has maybe another 2-3 years.
