This wines tastes like a $60 Napa Cab. On the nose it has plenty of spices and boardwalk style taffy. In the mouth it's loaded with oak, I mean, A LOT of oak. Decent ripe plum and raspberries but the oak is dominant. Finishes a but short.
I am glad I only paid $25 for this wine. I dislike the $60 Napa cabs so I would look for them in the $20 range. This is about right at $25. For $60 I want more complexity and balance from my wines.
The first punch on the nose comes from this wine, but after you are recuperated the wine has lost a bit of his glance; still a very nice wine, ripe, masculin, missing however an extra dimension to be extraordinary.
