My Rating 89 Points.
Deep ruby in color with a purplish rim.
Clean and gentle nose of blackberries, blueberries, figs, plums, cherries, oak, licorice, strawberry jam, vanilla, spices, bubble gum, metals, cherry pie, nail polish remover and peppercorn.
Full bodied, rich and smooth, with medium acidity and great looking legs.
Fruity on the palate, with blueberries, plums, cherries, strawberries, licorice, vanilla, leather, pencil lead, spices and peppercorn.
Long finish with firm tannins and black pepper.
This is a great Napa Cab. Great looking bottle too.
Nicely balanced and complex.
Needs an hour (at least) to open up, so be patient.
Enjoyable by itself or with food, like a nice piece of steak.
I enjoyed it all by itself, it’s like having a candy.
14.5% alcohol by volume.
