Dark. Can't see through this at all. Nose of dark chocolates and kirsch. Palate shows an intensely red/black fruit driven cab with a very luxurious feel. It's pillow-y and plush with so much going on. The tannins are resolving well and overall mouthfeel is medium weight on a heavy weighted-ready bone structure. Notes of cocoa, exotic tea leaf and black cherry pie, this is such a big package for a small price-point. Always one of my favorites and has been so since the 2003 vintage.
Napa Valley - Tasted at winery: Aromas of dark fruits, earth. Fairly well balanced but definitely needs a few more years to integrate tannins and acidity. On the palate dark fruits, oak, leather notes.
