Very lovely napa. Nose had caramel, black currants, cedar wood, and french vanilla oak. Palate had a good balance without the super ripeness of napa wine. The finish on the wine was precise. Drinking nicely now. 92
Very Napa with its oak signature and dark fruits; has some varietal character with some green, presumably from the cab franc or cab sauv, but somehow this wine doesn't manage to fully please on the whole despite having the right parts. Tasted only briefly shortly after the bottle was opened; would be interested to try it again with some more age on it but for now this is underwhelming for price tag.
