Drank 5/3/19. Tasting event, tasting pour.

Nose of cassis, plums, and sweet pipe tobacco. Palate of plums and cassis. Sweet finish. A great value for a Napa Cab.

5/21/7/4/4 +50 =91 pts.

Opulent nose. Good tannic structure on the palette. Very well made, but needs a little more time to relax a little more. Wifey tasted notes of cucumber, which I agree with. I can't believe that the fruit was under-ripe, so I assume these notes are created by the wood treatment.
I probably under-clubbed my rating.

Inky black in the glass. On the nose blueberry, blackberry, tobacco, toast, lots of barrel character. The pallet follows the nose with plum, cassis, blackberry, and dark chocolate. The finish is long with lots of toast and vanilla.

Organically grown. I don't get much fruit here. At least lacking middle. Toasted oak and spice from oak.

Good wine lighter bodied for a cab but maybe that is from not being over oaked
