This is a very solid bottle for the money. This has classic Napa cab flavor profile but is a touch astringent at first sip. After about 1/2 an hour of air this dissipates. What is left are dark fruits dominated by blackberry. This is a bottle any Napa cab fan will appreciate.
This wine is pouring with flavor! I never thought "tobacco" taste would be so good but probably because of the chocolately cherry flavors. This is my current favorite wine!
Cab, Merlot, PV. 18% new oak. $17. A little hot, but it's a bit too warmed. Cedar and plummy, cassis aromas and flavors. Pure, cassis fruit and tobacco on the midpalate. Exceptionally good for the price.
