Dark purplish red. Rather tight on the nose with dark and sweet spices, cinnamon, brown sugar, asian spices and dark raspberries. Heavy tannins (7.5/10) and medium to medium plus bodied. Solid acidity with a fruity attack, dark red berries, spices, cinnamon and gravel. A touch of heat with a dry and long finish. Needed an hour and a half plus decant. Drink till 2024. (91+)

Crushed flowers, bramble, and light cedar on nose and tongue. Moderate tannins. Medium mouthfeel. Great with steak.

Exceptional wine. Firm but not over powering tannins or acidity. Deep purple inky coloring. Slightly silky texture. Bursting of bright red fruit from start to finish. Even better an hour after opening.

2012 vintage. Would recommend decanting for at least 30+ mins. Opened up very nicely.

Napa cab in its native habitat, i.e. paired with$82 filet in Palm Beach, FL. They truly deserve each other.
