Calistoga Cabernet Sauvignon 2014:
This wine is dark and deep, and smells that way. Blackberry, black cherry and plum dominate the nose, unusual for Napa Cabs. There's only a hint of wood influence, with barely noticeable traces of cedar and spice, almost no graphite. On the palate, it's a smooth ride with gently firm tannins, if that makes any sense. The flavors are as fruity as the nose, but it’s as dark as well. The wine finishes long and leaves dark fruit as a calling card.

Smelled amazing, classic napa cab. Once it opened, the wine became pretty tannic. Was good, but a little too dry for my liking and the price.
