First of the two single vineyard bottlings at Classic Wines of Great Falls. Deep purplish ruby red. Layered nose with slate, dark raspberries, and dark cocoa. Moderate tannins (7/10) and full bodied. Stoney backbone with balanced acidity. Dark palate with spices, as well as baking spices and dark red berries. Lingering finish. This is a baby that needs some time to develop. Drink till 2029. (91+)

Was honestly disappointed. Did not seem balanced nor have a good finish. Did not stand up to food

Drinking well for 2014. Like most of their young wines they drink VERY well early!

Had this in Ohio with some new friends at a nice little wine bar called "Cantina”. Not the best Napa cab I've had but still a very good can. Full bodied with a nice round structure. Also this wine is still young and could use a few years in the cellar. My rating of a wine represents not only the wine but the experience we had when drinking it.
