My Rating 90 Points.
So it is Friday again, and I have to have my Cabernet fix for the weekend, don’t I?
Deep inky in color with a short purple rim.
Fruity nose of blackberries, sweet cherries, black currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, earth, leather, green pepper, chocolates, tobacco, tar, bitter herbs, spices and black pepper.
Medium plus in body with medium acidity, long legs, smooth and elegant.
Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, sweet cherries, oak vanilla, licorice, light vegetables, coffee, chocolates, tobacco leaf, beef jerky and peppercorn.
Long finish with soft tannins and nice acidity on the very ending.
A very nice, smooth and luxurious, Napa Cabernet. Still young and missing some structure. Nice and balanced, but still missing something that will hopefully come in a couple of years. I liked the length on the ending, though. Much more complex after 2 hours of airtime.
14.5% alcohol by volume.
