Road tar, currants, cassis, and some higher levels of brett on this one. The palate has some really nice depth with dark fruit of blackberries and cassis, but the brett is a little too strong and somewhat overpowers the flavors. Drink now before it gets much worse.

Perfect end to Premiere Napa Valley is a pre 1990-Bordeaux Dinner to re-calibrate from all the barrel samples.

Nose of blackberry and tar. Tastes of sour cherry/diet cherry cola and dried cranberry. Surely past its prime, though still a little enjoyable
