Ms. Right and Ms. Right are one and the same. Stunning fruit, bruised yet Devine cherry with classic cassis, a little floral violet nose and suede subtly lurking with a harmonized blend of oak showing warm lactones spice and character. The tannin if sublime and can be enjoyed now or saved. Super!!!

Contemporary Napa Cabernet Sauvignon done very well. Dee, dark and rich without being too abrasive. I highly recommend a tall glass.

All that I need to get by. Classic and defined, Napa Cab right where you need it sometimes. Like the perfect cornbread, simple things just done oh so right.

Blueberry and slight heat on the nose. Palate of black cherry, tight structure, evident mineral and acidity, vanilla notes and new oak. Wine is relatively fruit forward but with complex structure.

Lovely nose. Flowers, red & blue fruit. Falls flat on the palate. Leather. Stones. Little fruit. Tight tannins. Short finish. Enhanced by filet mignon. Definitely Old World-style. Might come around with cellar time.

Nose - OAK! Lots of vanilla, baking spice, along with plums and currant.
Color - Deep purple.
Palate - full body, lots of tannins but smooth. Jammy plums, figs, currants. Loads of vanilla and toastiness. Big flavor.
This is an excellent special occasion wine. I wish I could afford to drink it more often.
