To me this did not taste like it came from the Napa Valley. this is a very fruit forward wine, and I think the youthfulness of this sort of crushes some of the delicacies that might come out in the mid palate after a few years. Red and black fruit dominated wine. Really just kind of has one focus, but does that one thing extremely well. This was not decanted really much at all, as the focus was for the person who opened it to recork and enjoy later that night. I bet it was doing much better then. The back end has a lot of roasted cedar type tannin, which I think will soften and make this one shine quite a bit more in the years to come. If you have this bottle, I would certainly hold it. — 5 days ago
This is a very enjoyable Cabernet from Napa with the perfect amount of age on it. I am surprised at the ratings on delectable. Beautiful bramble fruit on the nose with a slight touch of oak. On the palette there is an enjoyable minerality that blends beautifully with the black fruit and an appropriate amount of acidity to give the oak a nice subtle backbone. Very enjoyable for the price point, I could see this doing well for a few more years in the bottle. — 13 days ago
Deep and dark ruby red. A bit elegant on the attack of the nose with purple flowers leading into a rich undertone of cassis, blackberries and a bit of woodiness. Medium plus tannins (7.5/10) with a full body. Thick and lush palate coated in black cherries, black currants, dark powdered cocoa, gravel and lots of baking spices. Dry and long finish. Drink from 2025 till 2043.
