This wine is all about subtlety and restraint. While 17 was a challenging vintage, there are no signs of that here. Pure mature black fruits on the nose and palate. Dense mouthfeel with viscosity and moderate sweetness. Tannins are integrated, while the acidity is relaxed. Drink this vintage now or over the next 3 years.

@Roger Lehman couldn’t get wait too long. Delish with pan seared steak

Seductive nose of blackberry, black currant, creme de cassis, black pepper, licorice, cedar, and hint of anise. Juicy palate that at times feels a bit angular. Very good depth and starting to develop some savory notes. Round firm tannins.
Needs time to integrate. Very promising.

2017 from Napa have all been good but not great. This one needs time to allowed all that To Kalon fruit to sing.

Cedar and sage, Christmas 🎄 really aromatic with some tannic tension but a plush feel too; sensed this needs more time.
