Found another ‘17. Dark Ruby with aromas of ripe berry fruit and floral spice. On the palate flavors of blackberry, black cherry, plum and currants with complex spice showing notes of cacao, cinnamon and rich vanilla oak. Graceful soft tannins, nice mouthfeel, great balance with acidity, long finish, ending with notes of oak, smoke and mineral notes. Nice!

Birth year wine. Hoisin, dried mushrooms, licorice, bayleaf, rotting leaves, walnut skin, prunes, dried fig, wet leather, dried dill, iron. Definitely past its peak and not as complex as some older Napa Cabs. Not fruit forward at all. Tannins have resolved and finish lingers for a bit. Love that this is still holding on to some acid. The American oak still sticks its nose out , reminds me of old Rioja but with more structure and concentration for the age.
