This is a dark and extracted wine smelling of black currants, pencil lead, and floral notes such as violets. Very young, moderate grip, dark cassis berry with black cherry overtones. To me, this is prototypical mountainside Cabernet Sauvignon from Northern California. I would love to taste this in another 10 years when it settles down.

Lovely dark fruit on the nose and solid structure with enough acidity to go another lap or two. Nicely Oaked with cinnamon, vanilla, and new leather combo that is very enjoyable.

Really like this reasonably priced Cab. Held its own against a Spring Mountain and a Brio at the table. Perfect with a burger.

Always a solid wine and this one did not disappoint. It's hard to find Napa Cabs at $35 or less, so it's always good to have a few of these around

And now for New World. Oaky and ripe fruit, as expected, but drinking nicely. Could use some aging - still a little tight. Quality Napa Cab!
