Please don’t let my somewhat modest rating deter you from seeking this out. It simply isn’t my preferred style of Napa CS any longer and I primarily use Delectable for my own internal notes.

Very nice. Good body. A hint of sweetness at the back.

Super complex nose with figs, olive juice, roasted dark nuts, funk, and black licorice. Following that is a bit of a let down. Palate starts strong with dark fruit and charred earth but the watery finish (that I feel like is a vintage thing) leaves me hangin. Doubtful more time will help. Still a good showing.

It's been a few years since I've had one of these and I'm happy to see it still hangs with fruit and oak forward colleagues. Figs, olives, chocolate, and molasses. Medium bodied. Very good.

When my wife comes home from a bad day at work I always pull something good to make things better. The Beringer PR is one of my favorites, but pulling the 09 was way to soon. This has mouth puckering tannins and needs at least a year or two more to come together. Still delicious and of course bottle was gone before we knew it.
