Overlooked awesome Napa cab. If only they could all taste this good. Wonderful with food and solo.

Nice dark brick color, dark fruits, leather, spice. Lovely balance. Nice secondary flavors here. I'd drink soon and decant an hour.

Good wine - not up to the 07 vintage standard but still good.

Classic Napa cab! Always a treat. Lots of Tanin and oak with some leathery notes. Dark berries, and a little cola.

1hr+ decant. Definitely starting to fade. Classic Neal nose and flavors that are always distinctive. Very similar to previous notes. Depth starting to thin out. Wine was very different later in the evening.

PnP’d, but this needs about an hour of air. Dark purple color. Nose and palate initially dominated by olives and black fruit, but with air and time it becomes more Bordeaux like. Silky, smoky finish at the and on the finish. Probably past prime, so drink soon. Love Neal!!!
