Very dark profile aromatically! Fairly surprising. Only 13.5ABV, but expected with the vintage. Lots of sweet baking spices, ripe red, blue and black fruits berry fruits with currant too. On the palate, the fruit is very gummy...like fruit roll ups. Candied sweet tarts, cedar and a semi thin finish. It’s not on a decline, but it’s certainly not going to get better, and with the structure how it is, gaining more age to shed the fruit away will make this more thin than it already is.

The ripest of all the duckhorn wines. Not as complex as the merlot

One of the best I've had. A glass which brings you right to the vineyards of Napa with one sip...Great complexity; have another bottle I plan to age

Not a whole lot to it... but still a very decent wine. Not much complexity to it.

My first folly. Come and get it for cheep while it lasts. $25 a glass as my introductory premium cab by the glass to salute my promotion. Letting everyone get a taste of a classic vineyard that made me a lot of $.
