Lovely Napa cab with appropriate age on it. Just like a second growth left bank bordeaux. Solid cassis and red fruit over silky integrated tannins. Grateful I have a few bottles left. Note: cellared at 56 degrees since purchase if that makes a difference to you.
My last of these and unquestionably the best bottle of this wine. The color is inky garnet. On the nose this wine is graphite, vanilla and floral. The palate sports a beautifully integrated and balanced wine with lots of dark fruits, blackberry, cherry, pepper and little bits of licorice, earth and graphite. Although this wine is drinking beautifully IMHO it can be enjoyed for at least another 3-5 years. The wine has shown a major jump in quality during the 15 months since my last bottle. Exceptional for this price point. Wish I had more.
