Fruit-forward, nicely balanced tannins. Baking spices, red and black fruit (blackberry and black cherry) with a touch of a creamy, caramel note that lingers on the palette. Great finish. A good blend. #napavalley2014 #redblend

I have always been partial to this wine. Always delivers for my palette. Funny how that initial experience sets the tone!

Didn’t have the fortune of decanting but the Tuesday discount on the bottle at the restaurant made it worth it. I visited this winery about 3 years ago and enjoyed the different blend and vineyard expressions they do.

Not a game changer, just a nice blend (Cab dominant, rounded out by merlot, petit Verdot and Zinfandel). Agreeable structure. Plum, baking spices, and red and black ripe fruit on the nose. Fairly light on the mid palate which had good acidity with rhubarb tart, oak and some nutmeg.

Very nice but not quite as full bodied as I would typically look for.
