2013 Vineyard 7 & 8 Cabernet Sauvignon Correlation Napa Valley

Just a fantastic, classic, powerful Napa Cabernet. Leather, tobacco, cassis, touch of mushroom. Fantastic structure and minerality. Long finish. Held up over 3 days. Ridiculous QPR for $50 and one of the best Napa Cabernet deals I’ve come across. Drink now and over next 5 years.

A very nice wine with Bing cherries, spices, coffee beans, blueberries and oak. Medium plus finish and day 2 review. Should evolve over 5 to 10 years. Nice price at $28.

I was expecting much more out of this wine. Muted nose, tight body and fairly harsh tannic finish. I was disappointed.

I remember this being absolutely delicious. Did not need much of a decant. Wish I had bought more for because this was a steal for $22.

Bought this bottle on a whim...decently priced but Italian wines are not my specialty. Very acidic wine, lacked a bit of flavor on the palate though the nose was full of light fruits and floral hints.
