Unctuous, viscous and fruit forward. We're seeing a lot of wines in this style from 2012. Approachable young, if a bit overblown for my personal tastes. Still.....this is a wine that manages to show a good sense of place, easily recognizable as Napa cab. Also, nice aromatic and flavor qualities that are present in much more expensive offerings from the region. Alcohol is present.

2012 vintage. Chocolate covered cherry and rose petal nose. Medium bodied. Delicious, MOR (middle of the road) Napa cab. Fruity with supersoft tannins.

Hello Mr. Red...goes well with grilled octopus, and eventually, a chocolate soufflé.

Wow - this is a good wine. Well rounded. Pretty tight tannins but nice fruity finish. Beautiful bouquet and flavor. Buy me - drink me - pair me

The wine of the afternoon. Exactly what I'd expect from a 2012.
