Dark ruby, almost inky in color, with a short brick rim.
Fruity nose of blackberries, black currants, cooked plums, cherry pie, spices, cedar, vanilla, leather, light earth, pencil lead, peppercorn, coffee, mocha and tobacco leaf.
Full bodied, bold and smooth, with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry and very fruity on the palate with blackberries, cooked cherries, cedar, licorice, vanilla, leather, black currants, sweet chocolates, coffee, cola, peppercorn and spices.
Long spicy finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cherries.
This is a gorgeous Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley (To Kalon Vineyard). Showing great complexity with a great mouthfeel.
Rich, extracted and opulent. Fruit-forward and elegant. A delicious wine. Spicy with a teeth staining color.
This 15 year old from the great 2007 vintage is just beautiful now. Has a lot of years in it still, and will continue to age nicely in the 15 years.
Delicious right out of the bottle, and even better after 3 hours of airtime.
Good by itself as a sipping wine. I just loved it.
16% (!) alcohol by volume.

Had a chance to taste this 100% Cab from 2 Beckstoffer vineyards and 2 vineyards in Oakville, aged for 22 months in new French oak. Deep Ruby with aromas of complex berry fruit aromas wrapped in toasty herb spice. On the palate flavors of blackberry, cherry and sweet plum with licorice and cacao, adding cedar, herbs and tobacco notes. Soft velvet tannins, still young, long earthy finish, well integrated and nicely balanced, a joy to drink. Will age a long time. A Wow factor wine!! — 10 days ago

This is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. Nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel. Soft and elegant. Fruit forward with nice balance.
Needs a few hours to open up properly, and I gave it 3 hours in the decanter.
Complex and tasty. Rich, extracted and elegant. The tangy finish making it interesting. Loved the nose once it opened up.
A good quality wine that will age nicely in the next 10 years. Has good potential to become a 94+ wine.
Good by itself or with food, and will pair nicely with a big piece of steak.
A blend of 91% Cabernet Sauvignon and 9% Petite Verdot. A small production of only 6 barrels.

The inviting nose shows blackberry, cassis, raspberry, nutmeg, vanilla, eucalyptus, and subtle fresh herbs. Fresh high-toned acidity frames the well sculptured medium to full body. Great fruit intensity. Polished tannins leads to a long elegant finish.
Young and long life ahead. — 9 days ago

👃 is incredible. Black and blue fruit + olive.
Medium+ body, chewy mouthfeel. Blackberry, currant, black cherry, touch of dust, and acidity that is Corison. This is my favorite Napa Corison. Different than the ‘14s, ‘16’s, and 18’s that I love. Thanks @Cathy Corison !! — 6 days ago
Pop and pour. On the nose: black cherry, currant, oaky vanilla, anise, pencil lead. Taste: Schrader dense/rich, smooth wine with black fruit, currants, spice, oak, fig and a plumy cedar medium plus finish. Not a CCS or RBS, but I would not dump and spit! Cheers! — 7 days ago
