Smoky cherry tobacco and blackberry aromas give way to sour cherry and cassis Flavors tinged with a hint of wet stones and cedar. Killer stuff. Grapeyness showing through at this point in its evolution.

For those who don't believe Napa can't be balanced & nuanced (while still being unmistakably Californian), think again.

Although this is a blend with a fair amount of merlot in it, it reminds me most of an EMH Black Cat cab. Medium bodied with good acidity, moderate tannins, and a streak of spice on the finish. This was good on its own and, because of the acidity, also went very well with food. Really wish I had more.
