My Rating 91 Points.
Dark ruby in color with a short purplish rim.
Bold on the nose with vanilla, cherries, blackberries, black currants, licorice, mint, chocolates, smoke, black pepper, spices and leather.
Full-bodied with medium acidity and great legs.
Fruity and dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, chocolates, tobacco, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, spices and peppercorn.
Long finish with firm, angular tannins and black pepper.
A Great Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley, California. Great by itself or with BBQ meats. I paired it with lamb chops.
Elegant, balanced, complex and very enjoyable. Needs 2 hours to open up, and a few more years in the bottle, will do it justice.
14.8% alcohol by volume.
