Aromatically this is really attractive with an initial burst of sweet yet fresh black currant fruit that is quickly augmented by notes of cocoa, leather, mint, earth, oak, and pencil shavings. This is perfumed and shows the warmth of the year yet remains complex and even a bit restrained. A bit blunt on entry with an early hit of tannin that forms a firm foundation for the intense black currant, biter cherry herb, and earth flavors that build in the mouth. With its youthful touch of peach skin on the palate and lovely purity and freshness to the fruit on the backend this remains taut and vivid . The fruit tannins of the palate linger on the long finish which reveals more of a toasty spice note This impresses with elegance and finesse from start to finish. Certainly not a wine made to win competitions, it is dry, and clear, and crisp, a classic Napa Valley Cabernet that harkens back the style of wine that made Napa famous. A seductive wine with a future that should span two decades. 94 pts

Has a light silky texure going down. Fruit forward with light tannins. This wine is very good...but would be even better with more tannins or oak added in my opinion.....I say that because some people don't like the oak in their wine. Highly recommended; if you can find it. Goes well with anything, even fish...yes, I said fish. But very awesome with a med. rare steak.
