My Rating 92 Points.  
Price $50.

To welcome the weekend, we have here a wonderful Napa Cab.

Dark ruby in color with a short purplish rim.

Typical Napa nose with oak, vanilla, blackberries, plums, cherries, licorice, smoke, light cloves, mint, chocolates, spices and black pepper.

Full bodied, bright and smooth, with medium acidity and nice legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate, with blackberries, plums, cherries, oak, vanilla, chocolates, tobacco, earth, black pepper, spices, licorice and cola.

Medium plus on the finish, with smooth tannins and some cola on the very ending.

This is a Great Napa Cabernet. A very typical one, as well. Nicely balanced, ripe, fruity and enjoyable. Good as a sipping wine, but can also accompany grilled beef well. I Paired it with lamb chops. (really good).

It would benefit from a few additional years of aging, but so enjoyable now.

14.9% alcohol by volume.

91 points Wine Enthusiast.
