Deep and dark ruby red with a purplish core. Started to open up after an hour with subs intense aromatics. Dark fruits, black cherries, cherry liquor, twigs, dark cocoa and deep purple floral undertones. Moderate plus oaky tannins (7.5/10) and full bodied. Completely grips the palate from the attack through the finish. Mouthwatering acidity, delicious. Dark and rich on the palate; dark spices, tons of dark cocoa, cinnamon. Notes of black raspberries and cherries. A little toasty too. Started to get a bit more rounded on the palate as it opened up. Stunning wine that will only improve with time. Drink till 2033. (95+)

Love this wine and this bottle of '11 is really good. Could still use a little more time for tannins to soften a bit more, but a great wine in a tough Napa vintage.

This is the 2011 vintage. I think this wine is drinking extremely well right now. It has been decanting for 2 hours and is just smokin. I can't wait to open some of the "better vintages" that are in my cellar. Bravo.
