For my 2,500th review on Delectable.

A wonderful Napa Cabernet sauvignon from a great vintage.

Dry and fruity on the palate with black fruits and chocolate notes, light vegetables, pencil lead, peppercorn, dark coffee, spices, tobacco leaf and earth.

Full bodied and bold with medium acidity and long legs.

Still young and needs another 5 years to mature.

Good right out of the bottle and better after 4 hours of airtime.
14.2% alcohol by volume.

92 points

Drinking this wine reminds me of touching a collection of Packards, gazing at antiquated film-capturing equipment and eating cheese and charcuterie with baguettes at Inglenook. Wine will always allow you to harken back to certain memories and moods...and with this one it's always a pleasant memory...of which I hope to make many more of

Day 1: Didn’t like it. Day 2: still no good. Day 3: not sure why I kept it but had it next to a mediocre Cab and really enjoyed it. Remember it being too fruit forward initially but maybe I just needed to properly decant it. I’d try again.

Red fruits abound, but not much depth to it. Still solid, especially on sale for $50.

Beautiful weather, incredible view, perfect wine to finish it off. Bold, dry, bit of spice. 🔥

Dark berry driven flavors that need time to open.

1st of 3 Cali cabernets in the 4th of 4 blind tasting flights. A complex wine, tannic but as it opened up the currant flavors shone through. I believe this was once know as the ‘Cask’ bottling.
