My Rating 89 Points.
Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim.
Typical nose of blueberries, cherries, black currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, herbs, spices, dark chocolates, coffee, smoke, light earth and black pepper.
Full bodied with medium acidity and nice legs.
Dry on the palate with plums, blueberries, currants, vanilla, cinnamon, coffee, chocolates, tobacco, beef jerky and peppercorn.
Nice length on the finish with round tannins and tangy cranberries.
This is a nice, fruit forward, Red blend from Napa Valley. Drinks like a Napa Cab. Well balanced and rich, with mild complexity, and enjoyable by itself or with food.
Better after a couple of hours in a decanter. Peaking now.
I paired it with a big piece of steak.
14.4% alcohol by volume.
