This is a decent Napa cab with no real flaws, but very little excitement either. It's the kind of wine someone who doesn't know wine very well will be sold as a gift for their boss by a guilty-feeling and slightly unscrupulous wine-seller who knows that it's overpriced for what it is.

Amber color. Slightly tepid ose of orange and honey. Explosive palate with equal parts honey and orange liqueur with a hint of coriander. Long, long finish. Had it with foie gras pate and crusty bread - played but perfect combo.

Robe rubis foncé, nez sur les épices, petits fruits rouges, rien pour écrire à sa mère. En bouche, c'est tout en finesse, mais sans réelle complexité. Trop cher à 50$.

We drank the ducru straight from the bottle. I t was pretty tight, both nose and taste. It gradually opened up. The flavors reflected a fully mature wine. Drink up!

September 09 bottling. Decanted 1 hour. Light purple. Monster nose of red currants, prunes, strawberries, meat, leather and white chocolate. Wow, this is enticing! The mouth is more closed and mineral showing crispy acidity and very thirst-quenching. It may need a bit more time for the palate to open up but you need cool temperatures to store this wine. What impressed me about it was the lack of stinky aromas which I have tasted before in non-sulfur wines, this has real purity. This was my first wax-sealed bottle and I must admit to being an amateur at removing the wax. I tried cutting it away with the blade of the corkscrew which was messy and will try chipping away at it with a light tack hammer next time...
