Big honking nose on this guy. Mocha and espresso aromas mixed with bright cassis. Balanced nicely, dry but not so much that my mouth is getting pile drived. Jill thinks sage and dried fruits.

Classic jammy back and blue fruits on the nose supported by new oak and spice. Palate was much the same with good concentration of fruit and a soft mouthfeel. The wine was missing the green pepper and tannin it might have once had, but still maintained some acidity. Finish was medium and soft. Enjoyable bottle overall.

Spot-on classic Napa Cabernet. Small family property from Calistoga. Black fruit, vanilla eucalyptus. Plush, ripe tannins.

Intense dark fruits & spices intermingled with perfumed essence of prune, fig, molasses, menthol, clove, licorice, and sweet cherry pipe tobacco. Reminds me of a more feminine aged Caymus SS πŸ‘ŒπŸ» Delicious but lacks the staying power. Structure feels a bit loose, almost as if it’s disintegrating and unraveling at a quicker-than-normal rate.
