Tasted blind. Impressively silky tannins but otherwise not my thing. Really ripe fruit that is fading and not leaving much in its place.

2011 in a nice place. Very soft, with classic lucious wood component. Showing a typical Napa darkness without the density. Proud of how it shows the vintage.

Complex and layered with a nose of blueberries, cedar and a bit of green tobacco, with rich cassis, blueberries and creamy oak on the palate with a touch of coffee on the finish

Needs about 40min to an hour to fully open up. Starts off Bordeaux-ish then finishes up like a Napa cab.

Deep, opulent, sticky black berry fruit, cedar, damson and full on oregano herbs. Quite nicely integrated in the mouth, deep black fruit, chocolate style tannin, plenty of sweetness with out too much oak. A gentle giant, alc kicks a bit on the back end

Garnet color with black cherry, cassis, tobacco, and a bit of dried herb aromas. On the palate, it's medium-bodied with a soft texture, fine-grained tannis and good acidity with black cherry, cassis, and a bit of plum and spice flavors. Lingering sweet finish Blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc & 3% Petit Verdot. Aged in 100% New American Oak Barrels for 24 Months, then 20 Months in Bottle. Very good now, but would benefit from further cellaring

Big boy! Rich and opulent, lots of currant, cassis, a little sweet soil and a big mouthfeel.
