This is a gorgeous Napa Valley red blend from a great vintage. Showing great complexity and mouthfeel. Rich, extracted, bold and beautiful. Big mouthfeel with a spicy finish.
Although very tasty now, this 7 year old still has a long long time in it. Very powerful.
A great wine to have all by itself. I loved smelling on it for a long while.
