My Rating 82 Points.
Deep purple in color, and cloudy, with a purplish rim.
Tart on the nose with strawberries, raspberries, sour cranberries, pomegranates, licorice, light vanilla, wood, alcohol, metals and black pepper.
Medium bodied, smooth and elegant, with high acidity and long long legs.
Tart on the attack with sour raspberries, strawberries, vinegar, licorice, wood, tobacco, sage, bitter herbs, green vegetables and peppercorn.
Medium plus on the finish with medium tannins and tart cranberries.
This Napa Cabernet is unbalanced, but with some complexity. A little disappointing for the price point. It does not smell or taste like a Napa Cabernet. It became more tart as it opened up.
Very austere right now and will improve in a couple of years in the bottle.
14.9% alcohol by volume.
