I like the oakville cab most but they need a good decant and they are drinking fine versus tight as a drum

Daniel Benton is owner and winemaker - these are made in the old Napa fashion so they will age well and if patient in 3-5 years will drink a lot better

Also the fruit is powerful which gives a bold and beautiful nose - just too much alcohol but with age tannins will soften this I feel

Nice large garden variety smile today

Black currants, spice, and earth. Drier then most 13s in Napa I've had.

To receive the edge...
Light shadows in dark
Cast into center stage
Words scurry the lip

Stars align space to Park
Bottled purity in her Cage
Roaring truth Drips

Stung on edge
Beyond depths hold
Her mind waits

Thought brought to ledge
Feelings within fold
Tempering the dates

Jammy nose and sturdy tannins. Needs age but has great potential

When this went on sales, I had my reservation. Oakville AVA juice from a very good 2013 vintage for $29? Well, what a surprise! Medium to full body. Red cherry, mint, black currant, herbs. Vivid acidity with slight sweet undertone. Gripping tannins. Not a big and powerful Napa cab, but it's beautifully structured and well balanced. Just let it breath for at least 90 minutes before serving. Grape is from the famed Money Road Vineyard. I'm pretty sure this is the lowest-priced Oakville cab on the market.
