Textbook Napa Cab. It’s dry, smoothly tannic and subtle, with blackberry, cassis and dark
chocolate flavors nicely intrigued with herbs, tobacco and cedar. Just delicious now and for the next few years.
This is a classic Napa Valley Cabernet, with ripe cherry and currants and a melange of spices, graphite and exotic vanilla scents that hang like perfume in the air. On the palate there's a hint of earth that grounds the berry fruit and a moutful of that spice on the finish.
Look for black currants, toasty oak, tobacco and mint. Also keep your eyes peeled for cherries, leather and cedar. The key with this wine is its stunning balance and great complexity. It is textbook Napa Cabernet Sauvignon.
