My kind of old school Napa Valley wine. Full body, rich fruit flavor and beautiful hints of earth

Dark and sense with powerful aromas of Bing cherry, tobacco and dried roses. Medium bodied with polished acidity it opens up with ripe fruit and great structure. Blackberries and black currant explode with black plum and a note of eucalyptus drive to the mid palate. Ultra fine tannins bring out layers of smoke, graphite and savory spices on the decadent finish!

We were gifted almost a whole case of this wine for Christmas. This is bottle no. 2 I think. Gotta try to make them last.

Brilliant!!! So soft and smooth. Another fantastic vintage by a truly outstanding wine maker! Aromas of dark cherry, dark chocolate, crude oil and dried flowers. Black fruit and fresh herbs on the pallet. Hint of tobacco. Quite simply, a consistently terrific wine. More Please!

One of my favorite cabs from some of the oldest vines in Napa.

Wonderful wine. Balanced, elegant, so enjoyable. It’s not your everyday Napa cab. The fruit is present, and delicious, but not the star of the show. It’s the way this comes together that makes this wine so enjoyable. The tannins are present, but the acidity stands out more prominently than other cabs. Borders on bright acidity of a great Rioja. Drink this with and amazing duck dish or rich mushroom pasta. Cheers @Cathy Corison another beautiful expression of what Napa cab can do.
