First taste of the 2016. Delicious. Perfect with Halloween chocolate.

Delicious Cabernet Sauvignon Blend! This wine is young yet so delicious! Red and dark fruit, dark chocolate, licorice, cassis, baking spices, cedar, wet leaves, and soft dusty tannins! A fantastic wine indeed!

Deep garnet color. Subtle hints of dark cherry pie filling and baking spices with some interesting earthiness type aromas. Powerful flavors of cassis, blackberries, dried herbs and dark chocolate delivered on super silky tannins. Very nicely integrated with great acidity. A great finish. Thinking about Napa tonight and pray the fires dissipate soon.

Big bold and high in tannins . Probably needs to be decanted for a long time before drinking which may impact the drinkability after 45 minutes of decanting

Really nice with a 2-hour decant. I find their blends a lot more approachable in their youth than their single vineyard wines. Raspberry, currant, cocoa, cedar. Balanced fruit, tannin and acidity.
