Really rich, too much so, and I think they did a better job in 2011 in the cold vintage. This is generic Napa glop at a not so small $ and I usually love Pott

Very classic expression of Rutherford Cabernet. Lovely cassis and a mouthful of big, plush tannins.

Pop and pour. This needs much more air or time in bottle. Rich and densely packed, with gripping tannins. Would have liked to see some more acidity to balance everything.
