There's a moderate amount of medium grain tannins which are soft and unobtrusive, but provide little structure and are ultimately just kind of there. It's okay for what it is, and works reasonably well with a steak, but the loosely knit finish left me wanting. I don't drink much Napa cab anymore so maybe my perception is skewed.

    October 18, 2017 - Blackberries and sweet oak on nose
    Briary fruit with touch of acid
    Impression is sweet ripe fruit
    Tannins prominent and need a little time to integrate
    Agree good potential to age a few more years
    Ps agree with Babik - cocoa nibs on the finish

    November 5, 2016 - PNP. Dusty and delicious! Ripe thick fruits and bit of oak and leather on nose. Full bodied with plenty of dusty tannin. I wouldn't touch this for another year.
    Vac capped overnight and decanted an hour the next day, and was very reminiscent of 13 Caymus cab on the nose, but lot less $$.
