  • Pop and pour, consumed over 4 hours. Nose: Medium-plus expressiveness, fresh baked blueberry pie, lilac bush, and spearmint - very nice. Palate: Medium-full bodied, ripe blueberry, raspberry, and plum attack, enough mid-palate acid to balance the sweet up-front fruit, great mid-palate flavor persistence builds in intensity thru the back-end with the spearmint making a re-appearance and dominating a medium-plus length finish. This is drinking extraordinarily well right now, hard to believe I picked this up for $25 per - still have one left.

  • Excellent pop and pour. Great structure and balance. Ripe plum with a hint of tart and subtle earthiness to the finish. Need to find more of this.

  • Popped and poured, consumed over 4 hours. Nose: Medium expressiveness, dark flowers, black raspberry, and saddle leather. Palate: Sweet plum and raspberry attack, spicy mid-palate lift, builds in intensity thru the back-end, everything is in balance and nicely integrated from from front to back. Finish: 30+ seconds of spicy dark red and black fruit. An excellent example of a well balanced Napa cabernet, great value also.

  • Consumed over 2 days, note from day 2. Nose: Medium expressiveness, blue fruit - blueberry, dark red fruit - black cherry, violets, licorice, spice and earthy undertones. Palate: Medium-full bodied, spicy blue fruit attack, solid acidic backbone which makes it's presence known all the way thru to the finish, good mid-palate fruit presence, back-end shows licorice and hints of tobacco and earth. Finish: Medium plus length dominated by spicy dark fruit and tobacco. This wine has the stuffing to last another 5-10 years easily, a steal at $30.

  • Plum, blackberry and cedar on the nose. Nice dusty finish with hints of cocoa. A little flat in the middle, but it might have needed longer in the decanter.
