Better integrated than my last bottle, almost exactly a year ago.

Nose of black olives and roasted meat, which reminds me more of Syrah than Cabernet. Nice mix of savory elements and dark fruit on the palate, with the former becoming more prominent in the finish. Could use a little more depth on the mid-palate but, all in all, a fair value for $45.

Pure Cabernet fruit with a little Rutherford dust and a little spice, supported by fine tannins. A very solid effort.

Very nice, classically styled Napa cab. Ripe but not hot and fairly well balanced. Reminiscent of a Mike Smith entry level cab, which is high praise.
