Man, this wine is just as much a head-turner as I remember it being. One of the best under-the-radar buys coming out of Napa in my opinion. Nose has pronounced aromas of eucalyptus, cedar, spice box, coffee, and black cherry. Palate has rich black cherry, black currant, blueberry, and chocolate with some mineral overtones. A lovely long finish and a seductive mouthfeel make this a winner in my books. Bravo.

Dark inky wine. Tobacco, cigar and cedar are prominent on the nose. Incredibly silky wine....just gorgeous on the palate! Very long finish. Love this wine.

For a cab in the mid $40's this is a rocking value. Competes very well with the entry Round Pond and Palmer which I very much like as well. Double decanted for 2 hours. Dusty graphite on the nose. Nice concentrated dark blue fruits with just a hint of spice on the finish. Super smooth after some air. Among the top of my QPR list.

Go Falcons!!

I'd love to match Parkers 95, but I have to stick with 93. This is the darkest wine I have seen. Deep purple. Looks like motor oil in the distance but the red legs let you know its juice. Nose reminds me of Round Pond with a slight (very slight) touch of VHR. Fruit definitely must be from the valley or slight elevation. Blackberries, toast, spring flower, pine, slate, & red iron dust. Touch of mocha brought out with Tiramisu. Finally opened up after 4 hours. Not sure I would buy and drink again. If I did, I would cellar for years - at least 10-20.
