Enjoyable. Abundant taste of ripe berries, a bit of chocolate, and a hint of juniper. Fine with a soft cheese such as Mt Tam but stands well on its own.

Nice Napa cab with complex berry and mint overtones. Only criticism was the fruit seemed slightly over ripe at times.

Purple color. Black tea, black cherry fruit aromas. Subtle and well integrated vanilla oak aromas. Black olive aromas. Powerful, yet silky tannins with a fruit filled mouthfeel. Balanced acidity, smooth yet lingering finish.
