This is a delicious Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley.

Dry on the palate and fruit forward.

This 6 year old is drinking very nicely now, and will continue to age nicely in the next 10 years.

Complex! Berry brambles, plums, crushed gravel — a year ago
Rim to rim invariance of black cherry peel with smoky topaz highlights. Nearly Dense and dark as black coffee. Violets shine on a nose of plum , black currant jelly, blueberry-dark chocolate, roses with a tiny whiff of bovine, tilled soil, dried blackberries, and blueberry bran muffin. Graphite and licorice extract keep the fruity nose in check, and the burgeoning power of the palate rushes from the glass. Leather and oak frame the crushed, dried violet, in a grilled herbs de Provence, bing cherry, black cherry, and currant culmination!
What a finish. Lengthy resonance is finally whittled to a raspberry point.
