At 16 years old this wine has it going on. Pure seductive nose that draws you in and makes you want to get closer. Plenty of tannin to match up against a big bad steak dinner. Hint of bell peppers lingering. This wine has even more years to its life. Thanks Stephen!

Deep and rich. Full flavour and tannins galore in the aftertaste. Fantastic for the price point.

Smooth for a cab, easy drinking.

Cabernet from Napa has never let me down. Irony is a good example of a simpler, yet consistent Napa cab.

Lots of classic Cab green bell pepper on the nose layered with coco and berries. Well integrated on the palette. Finished the bottle on night two and the wine continued to evolve. Full notice - I work for the parent winery that makes this wine.

Drinking Cali Cab with pasta and salad... ironic?
