Sipping Fine Wine

This historic winery was purchased by Beringer in 1999 and also owns Meridian, Chateau St. Jean, Napa Ridge, Chateau Souverain and Stags' Leap Winery. A blend of Cab from several top Napa vineyards, aged separately for 19 months then adding a bit of Cab Franc to the final mix. Complex aromas of dark red and black fruits with sweet spice scents. On the palate black cherry and red plum flavors with leather, cacao and coffee, well balanced. Firm soft tannins, lingering finish ending with fruit and oak. Nice!

Big fruit on the nose, a bit of alcohol. Velvety full body. Delicious and drinkable.

Raspberry and tea rose on the nose. Tart with mineral hints upfront. Juicy to tannic body. Finishes with mild and pleasant heat. Overall a very nice experience.

Blackberry on the nose. More light bodied and citrus then the 2012. Plum on the mid palate. Heat comes on the very far tail end.

Great nose initially I the glass but subsided after 1/2 hour or so. But on tasting nice tannins. Would buy another

Full bodied and boisterous like like a pre-weightwatchers Oprah, with notes of dark berries, California raisin, leather, tobacco, cedar, clove, cherries and some rain-dampened, Viking-trampled earth. Super dark color on the rim job.
