Wow was this good! I had this pretty soon after it was popped and it was just a powerhouse elixir of flavor. Very “iron fist in a velvet glove”. Up front, blackberry compote, shaved cocoa, and graphite. Velvet like on the palate...glides across picking up blueberry, nutmeg, currant and sweet pipe tobacco. Plenty of fruit and savory balance. I imagine this was even doing better after I left. I need to try this again!

Big boy wine with concentrated fruits chocolate and graphite and needs a good 2hr decant for it to round out. Paired well with a big T-bone steak. Grapes sourced from Dr.Crane, Weitz and Pierre’s vineyards.

A little time in the decanter and then...wow!
That blend of great Napa vineyards from a great winemaker! Balanced and great finish.

Another serious Sam Kaplan concoction (Sam is in the photo...not the one with the snake). A Cabernet Sauvignon blend from the famous Dr. Crane, as Piedras and the Weitz Vineyards. Deep color, staining the glass (and anaconda decanter...that will never be the same) and layering the sides of the glass with beautiful, plush opaque runs. Full-bodied to almost dense, but still trademark Kaplan lushness, balance and great finish. Dark cherry fruits and more chocolate than cocoa on the tastebuds with a touch of spice on the nose. Already a stunning wine at 2014, with proper decanting. I am sure it only gets better!!
