This is a very tasty and spicy Napa Cabernet. Big and bold with a great mouthfeel and nice complexity.

Needs time to open up properly.

Showing black fruits with chocolates earth, cedar, vanilla, licorice, coffee, tobacco, spices and peppercorn chocolates.

Still young and needs longer time in the bottle to mature, but already yummy.

Interesting and delicious.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

93 points.

$70.

I had high hopes after hearing the reviews. First sip was understated Napa Cab, fruit but not over the top. All was good but then...the aftertaste was too burnt. At first I thought it was the bottle. So I tried another a few days later with the same result. It’s a good wine, but the reviews I’ve read make it sound great.

$60-$70 depending where you live,
96 points from Parker & Jeb
Not quite pop & pour but you could in case of emergency.
I think I’ve been spoiled by Venge at $30-$40 for the same quality,

A wine with great purity and focus.. not too jammy but beautifully fruit forward with black and blue fruits taking center stage. Medium to full bodied with smooth tannins!

Tremendous value with this wine. Drinks like a much more expensive Napa Cab.

Layered and concentrated, but needs time. Currently, dominated by the ABV, but the complexity is there for greatness. Give this baby 10 - 12 years. 2016 vintage on Oct 4, 2019
