The nose made me think perfection but .... it was very good just not great

Had a year ago and said wait two years. But, I have a line on a case for a great price so revisiting. Really good progress and 93 could be conservative. Still tannins to resolve so I stick to not quite ready but really developing into a stunner. Gonna grab the case. (And the 2014 Firebelle)

Stop, turn around, put this back, and grab something else from the cellar. Don’t touch until at least 2024.
This is the first ‘16 I’ve thought was too tannic to drink now.
Bitter chocolate, currant, coffee, and cherry.

Dark red on the sight. Great nose: potent dark fruit, beautiful, with some vanilla notes. Full bodied, high tannings with velvet feel, very structured. Powerful wine.

Beautiful bouquet right out of the bottle. Takes time to open up, but the lusciousness soon evolved to evident dark fruit and subtle spice on the nose and palate. An elegant Napa Cabernet that’ll pair perfectly with braised short ribs.
