Easy juice to love. Acid was there, a touch light on the palate which made for easy drinking.

Black cherry red raspberry. Lush and bright. Delish strawberry. Great acidity. Yummy mountain cab. Gentle tannins. $30

Big bell pepper nose, big acid, great extraction, slight smoke, chewy but malleable tannins. Just about prototypical for Napa mountain-grown Cabernet Sauvignon.
