Another great wine by BV. Rich, smooth, with lots of dark fruit coming through with just a bit of that Rutherford dust on the back end.

Pretty nice but not complex. A lot of stewed dark fruit, plum, some wood, pretty firm tannins, a touch of new leather, brambley (is that a word?), a bit high in alcohol for my taste. A pretty solid Cabernet, but not very inspiring.

Post 500. Taking it old school with a winery that helped introduce and foster wine appreciation for me. Dark fruit, integrated tannins, with long smooth finish. BV still making great representative Napa Cab.

Well structured. Inky and fruity, dark plums, pencil lead and forest floor Glycerin. High alcohol.

Always been a fan of BV so had bought a Flight of the maestro this being 2010. I think it could have spent many years in the cellar but was eager to taste. Needs opening 20-30 minutes in a Bordeaux goblet but worth the wait. The real deal

Wow. Lot going here. Been open 24 hrs. Good firm tannins, great can nose, mocha and licorice on the palette and finish.

Gorgeous, just entering its prime. Classic Rutherford dust character, rich and bold fruit with fine tannins.
