Decanted for two hours and still a bit tight. Dusty red/black fruit, pebbles, warm spices. Don't drink for a while.

Sleek and elegant. Fruit is pure and immediate, finely structured, Graves-esque minerality on the finish.

Tonight we are trying Napa Valley's own Ramey, Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 produced and bottled by Ramey Wine Cellars. This is amazing!
The cork has almost no absorption, the color is dark dark purple, and the legs are 10 seconds long and slow. The boquet is bosenberry / blackberry. The initial palate has a small amount of tart blackberry and it is buttery smooth on the tongue. No stimulation. Just pure silky joy. The finish is chocolate and raisin. There is a mild dryness. It leaves you wanting to take another sip immediately!!!!!
WOW!!
I love this wine! This is a definate must have by the case!!!

Delicious Cabernet blend with medium fruit, touch of spice and mineral; became smooth and fuller as it opened.

Held up pretty well. Red cherry notes and a light mouthfeel are all I can remember.
