Youthful bright, full ruby. Crushed blackberry, black cherry, licorice, violet and a musky whiff of leather on the nose. Very suave and lively on entry, with intense black fruit and black olive flavors lifted by a floral element. The slightly funky quality on the nose is not apparent in the middle palate. Stands out for its finesse of texture, nicely restrained sweetness, juiciness and delineation of flavor, with its fruit element still quite youthfully vibrant. Finishes with a firm dusting of tannins, a repeating suggestion of wildness and excellent length and lift. Starting to unwind but there's still plenty of positive evolution ahead for this Cabernet, which is a blend from disparate vineyards in Napa Valley. (Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, May 2020)

Screaming Eagle clone by the same winemaker. Powerful, deep but smooth and balanced

Some weren’t too crazy about this. Maybe some brett and maybe that’s why it didn’t offend me. I like it!
