Community Tasting Note

  • CashUSM16 Likes this wine: 93 points

    May 26, 2021 - Solid, pure Napa Cab. Hits the mark on what you would expect from a standard, mid tier NV Cab.

    Loads of up front black fruit, well integrated oak with a noticeable vanilla undertone mixed with some baking spices. Still youthful and vibrant but with well integrated, supple tannins. Nothing overly complex but could develop some tertiary notes with a few more years in the bottle. Enjoyable, smooth, juicy, and fruit forward.

    Certainly benefitted from a 3 hour decant and enjoyed with a few reverse seared steaks.

    Color: Purple at the core, Dark Ruby at the hue

    Nose: Black fruit, vanilla, baking spices

    Palate: Consistent with the nose; Very juicy and fruit forward with black currant and a touch of tart black cherry. Well integrated oak with vanilla and baking spices. Medium plus acidity, medium tannins (softened due to decant, medium plus if you PnP), medium plus alcohol.

    Finish: 30 - 45 second Finish of black cherry and vanilla.
