I dedicate this to oldest - dean's list in electrical and computer engineering with one semester left - brilliant son and I love you

We had one sip and we are enjoying this beast - needs some air - so don't pop and pour - like I did - tannins are settling - I like it and glad to@have a few - like the 10s more - oh well it's Friday and the smiles are abundant

Just utterly pleasing...!!

TRB (and his team!) never fails to impress me with their wines.

I've had the pleasure of working closely next to them and I'm always impressed of how different, multi-faceted, high-quality, vineyard-specific wines they can turn out from their very different fruit sources.

Napa fruit purity and freshness prevail here! A dark red core with vibrant red edges. Aromas of cherry, black raspberry, chocolate, and graphite . The palate is young but generous with fine medium toned tannins and plenty of acidity for freshness. Great length as the finish carries the fruit and dusty mocha to the end.

Ready to go with just a little air.. Full-bodied but well balanced. Tannins are well integrated at this point.

Every time I have a Rivers-Marie Cab, I’m impressed...like I somehow forget how much I like them. This one is just a step behind the ‘08 for current drinking. Great fruit but also very well balanced, with good underlying acidity that should help it age well.
