Called Napa Cab. This is a monster Merlot Blend. Definitely over delivers.

This was a delight... the '05 is drinking so we'll right now it felt like much more of a "special" bottle than its price point. I need more of this! Had lots of sediment... def. decant for an hour or more.

Pretty decent drinking Bordeaux that has continued to develop showing black fruits, graphite, menthol, licorice, sweet & savory spices with tobacco notes

This was still pretty youthful when 1st opened although over time developed nicely in the glass. Red & black fruits, leather, graphite, spice box & tobacco. Recommend a decant as it threw off a lot of sediment

It is nice to take a moment or more than a few for dinner and a dark, rich, French Bordeaux with my hubby on Valentine's Day! Bisou....

Nice dried fruit. Can stand a few more years tucked away. Full bodied but tight.

Aha! Sing me a song of six pence! An amazing show of beauty and grace. Well liked by all with firm chewy tannins. This could have gone for another 5 - 10. Yum, sad to see you go, glad to have more space..
