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

Slightly underwhelming. Fun to try and have, but bitter oak nuance took over, fruit was tired, and I didn't crave another glass.. Coravin'd my 2010 Erba Cabernet and for $20 cheaper, WAY better. A wine that I wouldn't really pay for, but I'm not gonna say no to a glass. I wish they'd try and get back to the old days and make a wine like they used to. Maybe they will one day.

But still created smiles

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