Sipping Fine Wine

Deep ruby color and aromas of dark fruit, berries, mint and cedar, with a slight earthy scent. The wine is a blend of 86% Cab Sauv, 9% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot & 1% Cabernet Franc and aged for 20 months in 30% new French oak. On the palate flavors of blackberry, cherry & sweet plum with oak and cacao. This full bodied wine finished with notes of tobacco and earthy notes, oak, well balanced with solid tannin structure. Delightful! Great value.

Decent weeknight drinker. The nose shows warm spices and forest floor. The palate is medium bodied, showing mostly crushed red berries, highlighting raspberry and red currant. Some vanilla, blueberry, and cedar mixed in. Really noticeable acidity. Finishes with a pleasant hint of espresso but also a bit of heat.

Exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon from Calistoga. Extremely well balanced with everything you would want out of a Napa cab. Slight oak, mild fruit, structural tannins. This wine would pair well with any meal with meat, and pairs wonderfully with Piave cheese. Hold for 5-10 years from vintage.

Blackberry, slightly unripened, a little smoke or charcoal, medium minus body, short finish. Up against their Reserve, this is disappointing. Solid, but not at the price point.

90 points

Initial aroma of cherries then flavors with blackberries, plums that moves onto smoky and dry tannins
