this *really* needs to breathe. I drank it too soon and it was disjointed, acidic with the spice coming almost as a weird aftertaste, but after a while it settled down. the next day it was nicely balanced, with anise and cherry, a rich mouthfeel. thumbs up. just decant.

I agree with the last review. I had a glass' worth left the next day. It is better the 2nd day. Enjoy this wine in the next 2-5 years. The quality and tannins are there for aging. It is a big wine and will hold up to a big steak. Long spice finish. Fruit will show more after aging.

I'm not a wine snob, sommelier or all that 'sophisticated' about wine. However, I prefer red wine to white and have at least a glass every day. I just opened a bottle of this and was amazed at the flavor for a $13 bottle. I don't have a 'wine vocabulary', but would describe this as full of flavor with a fairly complex group of tastes.

I let this breathe for 30 minutes before drinking it and loved it. Totally balanced and smooth. I have been drinking heavier more tannic wines recently and this was a real pleasure.

Winemaker's Notes:

Notes: This beautifully hued wine leaps out of glass with aromas of chocolate/mocha, spicy cassis, plum and dill. Fleshy and ripe on the palate with developed flavors (it is a 2005) of raspberry and smoky oak this wine is a joy to drink. It's classically styled and super-smooth with exceptional balance showcasing chocolate, cassis and light tobacco notes through the finish. Cameron Confidential: Last summer we were invited to visit one of the facilities in a recently formed marketing group for several wineries in the Napa/Sonoma area. There we were shown about 10 wines and suffice it to say we bought everything they put in front of us, ranging from Carneros Pinot Noir and Chardonnay to Atlas Peak Cabernet to Alexander Valley Meritage. EVERYTHING we bought were finished bottling blend, simply excess wines above and beyond where they saw their sales projections and all ready to go right into the bottle. Go into the bottle they did this Fall.
