90 points
A nice nose of rich red fruits, earth and heat. Medium to full body, but ultimately disappointed me. The fruit was a little flat, and simple, and while the depth and finish was nice, their wine doesn't hold up to many other entry level cult Napa cabs in the $40-60 range, giving this poor QPR. Maybe a couple more years could help out, but I probably won't be finding out... Try the Hess estate cab, or a hunnicutt cab, and revel in their structure instead of this wine.

Clear garnet. Cigar box, leather, chocolate, black plum. Cinnamon, white pepper. Medium to along balanced finish.
