Deep Ruby with aromas of dark fruits and floral spice. On the palate flavors of blackberry, blueberry and dark cherry with meaty spice. Full-body, balanced acidity, fine tannins ending with tobacco, cacao and espresso notes on the long finish. More time will benefit. Good value.

A bit of a disappointing vintage of this Napa Cabernet. (2017 & 2018 were outstanding!) Dark ruby color. Aromas and flavors of black cherry, vanilla (lots of it), blackberry, blueberry, cola, caramel and dark chocolate. Medium-plus bodied with velvety tannins and a long oaky finish. A bit hot and a touch disjointed. Touch of sharpness on the finish. A bit better after a long decant.

Very good moderate priced Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa. Drank in January 2023. Some more aging will increase the overall taste. Pairs well with red meat and other foods.

NOSE: raspberry, a little coffee and toffee, spices, wet stone. Smells more like Bordeaux than what I am used to from Napa.

TASTE: similar to the nose … black raspberry, now also cassis, coffee, some oak … also now mint and similar herbs. Really quite Bordeaux-like, plus a dash more oak (I wish it were less). Excellent. 92.
