A deep garnet with hints of medium cherry undertones. Really intriguing nose that starts off with plenty of oak and blackberries, but then transitions to notes of leather, tobacco, and wet moss. What I want to say is that this is a very pretty wine, which it is, but it’s also so very big. It’s a huge Napa Cab which can be the death knell for so many wines but she manages to deftly avoid that fate. Plush and quite smooth on the tongue, there’s well integrated tannins and a certain lusciousness to this wine. Upon opening, there’s a surfeit of oak but that quickly fades and some really nice fruit shows. Blue and black berries, mint, chocolate, and herbs on the palate. Very nice long finish with some mild spice.

Ok to drink but remarkably uninterestingly. There are better alternatives.
