I assumed this would be fairly tight knit, but was pleasantly surprised. Poured really dark in the glass and was definitely a darker profile but there was an elegance to the finish. Blackberry, smoked cedar, dried herbs on the palate with a lavender type finish. Paired well with 2” thick prime cut bacon at Fort Worth’s newest steakhouse. 👌

After all day being a tannic monster...
Roast coffee on the nose, dry earth, extraordinary concentration.

Good, but just tastes like Napa cab. I expect more for a $50 bottle. Silky and smooth however - not as rich as I thought It'd be. More of an Alexander valley style honestly.

Classic Cali cab. But just too hot. Liked first glass. I’d like a Côtes du Rhône for 2nd glass please.

Dark fruit, light spice, muted expressions.

2013. Hard to find too many flaws in this one.

Very enjoyable. Not as fruit forward as most Napa Cabs, but still a great bottle.
