Deep garnet red. Dark nose with layers of spices, cocoa, black cherries and dust. Medium tannins (6/10) and well integrated. Medium plus to full bodied with notes of anise, black currants, cinnamon and dark cocoa. Drinking very well right now. Drink till 2018.

Sometimes you need a Napa Cab, great vintage, aged nicely, could've waited another 10 years, wild berries, tobacco, black olive, 2005

Another vintage of yawn. Great nose but a short finish, black fruit, lots of green pepper and black tea. The alcohol is a little out of balance too. If it were $20 it would be fine. But it's not.

Quick finish, lacks bold bouquet, too watery. Enjoyable but save for less unimpressive use

Needs long lead time in decanter to open up. Once open, great dark fruit flavored with a note of cocoa on the long finish.

What?! 8.9??? Has everyone lost their mind?!
It's like someone scrubbed a suckling and roasted it all day in the sexy earth and then put tapenade on it.

Blackberry jam, black tea, & violets. Smooth, with very light tannins. Starts off well enough, just falls off & loses direction on the mid palate & finish. It required lots of air to get it to this point. Unfortunately it's $50, because Napa. If jammy & light is your thing, you'll love it. Just don't expect more then that.
