Very inviting nose of toasted oak and hints of mint. Palate is mineral-driven. Palate is fresh and clean, with tobacco, sage and mint. Finishes with caramel and soil. Excellent example - from magnum.

For those who don't have $80 to spend on Cakebread. Vineyards sit side-by-side and they almost share a driveway. - $41 - 93 pts

Been a long while since I've encountered this California, Napa Cab. Leagues more elegant & drinkable than my last acquaintance.

Here is my Friday's Cabernet fix.

Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim.

Gorgeous fruity nose of blackberries, blueberries, cherries, licorice, figs, cloves, earth, mint, oak, vanilla, leather, eucalyptus, spices, chocolates, tobacco, beef jerky and peppercorn.

Full bodied with medium plus acidity and long legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, cooked cherries, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, earth, leather, beef jerky, vegetables and peppercorn.

Long finish with smooth tannins and black pepper.

A Great Napa Cabernet. Very typical and enjoyable by itself or with food. Nicely balanced and complex, with nice acidity to make it interesting.

Although it is very pleasant now, it is still young, and would be much better in 2 to 5 years.

Nicely paired with a nice piece of fillet mingon and grilled vegetables. This one is just delicious.

14.2% alcohol by volume.

So much dark fruit left on an old wine.

We brought this to Rio. It’s become our house wine (amongst others).
So good!

Distinctive Cab nose. Big black cherry, figs, spice notes. Dark hot chocolate, mild tannins and lingering finish.

Consistently great. Not saying it’s in the same echelon, but the flavors remind me of Schrader To Kalon.

Shut down quickly but surprised how well this held up.
