Dark Ruby with aromas of ripe berry fruits, herbs and earthy oak spice. On the palate flavors of black cherry, raspberry and currants @ with espresso, cacao and earthy notes. Well balanced, lively acidity, fine ripe tannins long ending with fruit, oak, mineral and tobacco spice! Nice Napa Cab! — 5 days ago
Great Cab blend. Love Faust Cabernet but this adds another level — 9 months ago
Blackberry, vegetal, herbal, with greenery. Some smokiness on the nose with black licorice. It's great to have an alternative of comparable quality to Napa Cabernet. In terms of $/points this punches way above its weight. To me, this is a very slightly better version of Faust Cab.

Wowza. Now that’s a grosses gewachs.
Nose is intensely mineral almost smoky. So dense. As it opens less dense and more floral. White flowers.
Palate is densely mineral. Gods lemon. So good. A 9.5 on open. As it opens more of a sweet elegance. Approaching Faust test levels.
