Absolutely one of my favorites! So lucky to have had the pleasure of tasting this wine. Such a lovely dark inky color and the nose is fantastic! Such a complex blend of berries. Trying to age the 2012 and anxiously awaiting the arrival of the 2012 Cru.

Amazing quality wine, by Paul Hobbs! Leather and anise on the nose, which was also very floral and aromatic from afar. Dense black currant and black berries, creme-de-casi, tobacco, tea, earthy notes, and toasted vanilla on the pallet, ending in a lingering mocha finish. Absolutely top notch example of Napa Valley. While still young, decanters beautifully, so I'd say hold or drink for this one. One of the few best bottles under $100.

Too tannic at this point and the fruit may not stand up in the future

Loved it. Tannins are nicely light and balanced. Smooth drinking. Black currant taste.
