Dark coffee and oak on the nose, tight with reticent berry fruit and lots of pencil shavings. This shows off a rather bright character on entry. It is mostly closed today, but the structure is very well balanced and even at this stage lends some finesse to the palate. The fruit is obviously lurking deep in the wine’s core and the flashes of fruit are relatively fresh with a candied black cherry and cassis element that drives the wine across the palate before relenting to the rather stiff wood tannins on the finish. Time should be kind here, but today it is a bit tough and quite reticent. 87pts

Interesting classic Napa Cab along the lines of Silver Oak. It is a heavy drinking wine that could use a couple of years and I feel should be decanted. I drank this with a seared Moullard Duck Breast and finished the Duck with a red wine reduction I made from beef shank and mushrooms. Overall the heavy dinner complemented the wine with hints of strong tannins and taste of smoke and the barrel it was in. At the price point from the vineyard it is a little steep but has potential. I would say a nice St. Helena Cab.
