Had this vintage several years ago, it is really hitting in all cylinders right now.

I loved this #oldworld #newworld blend to create a marvelous #newcalifornia obvious long maceration with deep ruby color, intense primary aromas of dark cherries, cassis, mint and capsicum, secondary of dark chocolate and tertiary of sage or ash. The tannins are very soft and the oak and alcohol are very balanced and integrated with the whole of the wine. Can age. Drink now until 2030

Big, ripe Napa cab but not overdone with oak. Has great range of flavor (vintage?). Slight green streaks of flavor remind me of great super Tuscans.
