This was pushing for wine of the day. Reminded me of certain TRB wines in the sense that this included the entire fruit spectrum...raspberries, black cherries, blueberries, blackberries. More blue fruit here than most other cabs (which I enjoy) that adds a sweeter note to the fruit. I saw @Ron R ‘s review where he mentioned brown sugar and I think that is very on point. Zero herbal notes here. Rich and compact. Oak is in play. A total pleasure wine at this point, for those who enjoy sweet and rich fruit.

This is like a tightly coiled spring on the nose and palate. Consistent notes from my prior tasting. This needs more time as the tannins are still underripe. Great potential here.

Very smooth and rounded cab. Perfect with Filet Mignon at Del Frisco Las Vegas.

So good. Some crazy aromatics you wouldn't normally associate with Napa Cab... Coffee, dark chocolate, toffee, perhaps a touch of cajeta.

Hot! 15.5% alcohol, but damn tasty after a short decant

Dark fruits, coffee, and chocolate. A full-bodied, dense wine. Drinking exceptionally well now.

Definitely a day 2 wine,
Heat dissipated somewhat & the flavors emerged.
Has another 10-15 years on it.
