Big wine but fresh and elegant too. Not over wrought to my palate.

Magnum. So polished; balanced, well integrated, the perfect blend of fruits and minerals. A step above...

What an elegant Napa gem! All the goodies of a well rounded napa can could ask for. Perfectly ready to enjoy with 3-5years away to the peak!

Magnum 1996 Harlan. Third set of reds we tried at house dinner w A&C BG and MR&GR. This wine we tried alongside the '96 Screaming Eagle. So cool to compare these two wines. This wine tasted much younger- greener, stronger tannins. Gorgeous wine and fun to drink out of magnum

Muscular yet expressive
All tannins seemed soft
Fruit - mostly black - seemed forward but still not at full peak
Loved it with truffled filet at Chevalier with BP and MK
