Raspberry, vanilla, cedar. Full flavoured, medium body. The wine leaves an leaves an impression after the fruit finishes. That is, the licorice-like bitternss and a little heat is sustained on the palate.
Not my style, which is to say that it's an over-extracted bomb in the style I wish Napa vintners would abandon. I wish I didn't have so many of these and the '05s on hand. But Christmas gift-giving season is approaching!
soft, but well-balanced. has a quiet finish that lingers, but I won't call it a long finish as it lacks a certain fullness and strength I associate with the long finish descriptor. Would have been a fantastic food wine, but we had it as a standalone wine tonight.
