Pours as a deep dark garnet color. This wine is type definition of Napa Valley Cabernet. Aromas of menthol, eucalyptus, licorice come first. Followed by ethereal aromas of mocha, seared meat, and raspberry that come and go. Taste flavors are mainly menthol, raspberry, vanilla, and eucalyptus/camphor. Only slight knock is that it is a bit one-dimensional on the fruit side. But thank goodness it's not defined by plums, prunes, and raisins. Fills the mid-palate completely and the Finish is medium long, very smooth. If you want to understand Napa Valley/Oakville Cab then drink this wine. I really think this hits the mark for a Napa Valley AVA under $20. This is value defined. Fair price and superlative product.
