4th Saturday Brown Bagger (R&D's): Opens with a nice bouquet of florals, black fruit and meat. Thin on the palate however, and very plain with generic black fruit and a short finish. Guessed domestic Syrah.
Still youthfully purple. Classic cab aromas of cigar box, and sweet plums. Pure cabernet fruit all over the palate. Silky and long. A touch of well-integrated oaky vanilla. Drinking nicely right now. However, I don't get anything terrior specific. Just nice napa fruit. At $100 direct from the list almost 10 years ago this is a dud. I'd be a buyer at about $30.
