Great wine! A napa cab that actually has acidity and isn't overoaked. Depth and intensity, really a great valued wine

Unfiltered means the nose is raw and stemmy, but at the same time the blackberry and red plum notes are that much more fresh. The palate has crazy chewy tannins, almost gripping at your tongue. Balanced and somewhat regal, this is great.

Thick rich currant and cassis berry fruit intense small berries very rich with dark chocolate and fresh plowed black earth a little petite Verdot and Syrah in the blend almost 2 years in 50% new French oak. Sweet tobacco spice with dense texture but still smooth and round on the tongue very rich but lovely balance and freshness with a long complex finish. Finish 45+ excellent+. Filtration only 50 years old so this is a recent invention

Not bad and a solid 8.5 but......Disappointed.
A Balanced Dry (over breathing a few hours) experience waiting and hoping the hints of black plum could surface producing the mouth watering personal history with Newton Napa (not Sonoma) above the mild asphalt/Black pepper.

Benefitted from 45 min. of air. Nice, slightly old school profile on the palate with a medium-full body. A bit short in the finish.
