really enjoy this cabernet- earthy but smooth and drinkable
Love this wine! It's earthy, actually dusty, you can taste the "Rutherford Dust" in every glass. It's also dark, plummy, smoky.
Outstanding... well balanced. The nose is intoxicating and matches the taste. The tannins are balanced and don't over power the overall essence of this wine as many cabs do. I used to be a tannin (wine) and hop ( beer) head. Now I enjoy the balance and not the extreme. I love this wine.

The Wine News ReviewRated 90Nuanced aromas of black currant, mocha and touches of herbs and cedar. Chalky flavors of brambly blueberry, minerals and mocha. Plush Finish.Wine Tasting NotesA bright, concentrated blackberry and cassis fruit core enveloped in aromas and flavors of dark chocolate, vanilla, French roast coffee, clove, bacon, and cedar. This wine fills the palate with both flavor and texture. The fruit flavor lingers after you swallow, and slowly melts into the elegant layers of flavor provided by the finest French oak barrels. The abundant, mature tannins are rich, yet also balanced with fruit, making this wine enjoyable now, but ensuring this vintage will drink well for over a decade. I am awed at this wines ability to so clearly capture the essence of Napa Valley Cabernet. Enjoy!
