More fruit than a holiday fruitcake. Cherry pie on the nose makes way to blackberry & plum.

First Napa Cab in a while, was going for some more evolution toward a little sophistication. Still navigating "Islands in the Stream".

This surprised me. Complex, powerful, concentrated, youthful. Runs the gamut from floral to chocolate and earthy. Drinks above its price point.

The nose on this wine is very expressive in dark fruits, sweet plum, black raspberries, currants, vanilla, cola, pencil lead and earthy notes. I could sit here and just sniff this all night and be satisfied. At first sip the dance continues with expression of a nice Bordeaux Blend. The dark fruit is very nice and the balance is exceptional. Blackberries, riper plum, notes of cocoa, nice rich tannins, a good earthy feel with a medium to full + mouth feel. What a nice Cab!!!!! WOW!
