Might be high production and conspicuous but this wine is really delicious. Probably the best version I have ever tasted of it. Structurally impressive in a vintage where many premium reds are devoid of backbone.

Dark fruit, plums, tea and licorice. Just wish I had more patience to let this mature. A really good wine.

Mild oak, well balance blend that deepened in character as it opened up.

Leather, earth, menthol, and also some black fruit. Silky tannins that just sashay past your palette. It wants a big piece of meat, but you can also just sip it by itself. A Napa beauty.
