Double decant and pour (decent chunky/fine sediment). A magnificent dark ruby red color with some bricking. On the nose: a soft but beautiful nose of dark berries, eucalyptus, spice, burnt carmel, and that aged cab perfume. Taste: KABOOM! rich, smooth, velvety well balanced full body wine with black cherry, herbs, currants, wet stones, dark chocolate with a spicy Toffee long finish! YUM! Drinking great now with at least another 5 years to go. — 19 days ago
A great Napa vine will improve with age, soft ripe nose with young and fruity tannins.
Enjoyable with a light Mezzeh. — 4 months ago

Blackberry, plum, fresh sweet mint (subtle), dark forest fruit and a smidge of graphite. Velvety smooth, and really easy to drink. 2012 drink well in 2021. Beautiful. — 3 months ago
