Finally getting around to posting Day 5 in Napa, our final day. 5 years in a row visiting...hope to make it 6 next year!

Great wine to enjoy as our final one of the trip. Big, mountain structure. Intoxicating nose of cherry cordial, mixed berry pie & dark chocolate. Powerful on the palate with tobacco & grilled dark fruits. Silk like with a big finish. I’ve been fortunate to have a few vintages of this and it is always a winner.

My 1000th Delectable wine! And quite fitting. This wine is massive. Compared to a 13 O'Shaughnessy Veeder that was consumed alongside, this wine had a bit more. Both were still youthful and primary, the nose of this with a Blackberry and cassis. Entry is just north of full bodied, tannic from the start and stiff to the finish. Black fruits and a hint of lavender and tobacco. Has quite a few years left. This bottle was a victim to experiment and still an easy 95....I feel inclined to give it a 96 but am stopping at 95. Easily a 97 at maturity if my willpower allows it (which it won't).
