Perfect Napa Cab. Aromatically romances you with kisses of milk chocolate decadence and blackberry pie. Then brings your palate to its knees upon first kiss that is equally complex in this marriage of dessert flavors and dark berry melange. Would not change a thing! The finish culminates in a glorious crescendo of harmonious tannins and juice, and lingers delicately in the aftermath of climax. This delicious wine is available on www.freerunjuicewine.com — comment and tag me if you would like a discount code! Cheers friends!

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.

Mineral-driven nose, with cassis and brown sugar.
Palete has toasty oak notes, with blackberries and rich raspberries. Tannins are underripe, but regal. Wine finishes with with a long tail. This needs a few more years in the bottle, and should continue to further improve.

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.

This is one of those wines that I said I was going to wait 10 yrs before opening...🤔 No real regrets! This wine has big bold dark berries, licorice Snaps, anise, vanilla, bay leaf, eucalyptus caramel, and maple syrup! Not picking up any acidity, tannins are very nicely integrated and presents with a very long finish. I am really on the fence between a 9.1 or a 9.2 rating!

Intense and delicious with a lingering finish. I am tasting blueberries, chocolate, and a bit of coffee. Fabulous bouquet. Decanted for a couple hours.
