Nose is lovely here. Rich and deep and inviting, somehow manages to smell soft... Palate is ridiculously smooth, a big dark fruit velvet cushion. Not entirely my style but can easily see why many would go nuts for this, very impressive and so much stuffing that its bursting at the seems.

2012 - very complex, sexy, refined tannins and long. Almost feminine but still powerful. (Like a young Margaux) best Cask 23 I've ever had. #stagsleap #napa #napacab #wine

Badass. Black and blue fruits, creme de cassis, vanilla, camphor, pencil lead, and crushed rocks. Super silly and suave on the palate. What a wine

Aromatic nose of red and blue fruit both ripe and sweet, blackcurrants, dried coconut; med. bodied, juicy, fresh, lovely balanced structure; palate of cassis, blackcurrant Jan, cocoa, mocha, herbaceous tones and cooking spice; good length

A bit more moderate than expected, and definitely needs time to develop, but a good showing of restraint from one of Napa's most visible producers.

Long legs on this wine, as well as finish. Beautiful tannins. Needed more than my one glass to really get to enjoy this well crafted wine.

Home run to say the least. Awesome nose and a long complex finish. Bravo!

Smells amazing, tastes even better. Plumb, tobacco, elegant.
