@Eric Urbani I couldn’t find out but the color makes me suspicious at least a little Petit Verdot has been blended in.

Firebelle Napa Valley Merlot Blend 2011

Great legendary Calistoga winery. 2011 vintage not the greatest, but after years in the bottle this was tasty Cab/Merlot blend. Wish i could afford the 2016s. — a month ago

Solari Estate Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

The 2016 ‘Solari Black Label’ Cabernet Sauvignon is an absolute revelation at this early state in its development. Deep, layered and highly gratifying aromatics greet you with smoky undertones that are set with black tea, exotic spices and huckleberry compote that all wonderfully meld together on the nose. There is a seamless quality that deftly carries through this wine. While obviously rich, the sense of balance is also very satisfying. Highly structured and tannic the ‘Solari’ shows incredible texture, yielding intense mocha, asphalt, anise and creme de cassis flavors. The black fruit and mineral driven finish lingers exceedingly long. While a delight to savor in its youth, this beautiful wine will have an exceedingly long life in the cellar. Make sure and give this at least another year of bottle development prior to enjoying. Drink 2021-2045- 98 — 3 months ago

I’ve not had this wine from Ramey before...fantastic stuff! Wonderful aromatics of smoked licorice, blackberry liqueur, candied black cherries and baking spices. Powerful and textured, revealing espresso, cassis and a display of mixed berry pie notes. This will hold for a few years, but it’s not getting better. Drinking very well! — 3 months ago
