Lot 337 combines pretty layers of red berries, mocha, tobacco, plum, and baking spices. The palate is fresh, compact and balanced with fine grained tannins and an expansive finish.
This Bordeaux-style blend comprised chiefly of Merlot and Cabernet presents the best of what Napa is known for in an elegant package. This was a cooler vintage for Napa Valley, so this wine is not as fruit sweet and delivers great complexity. The wine's depth can be attributed to the cooler 2010 vintage as well as the immaculate vineyard practices of the growers.
"Soft, luxurious wine for drinking now. Made from Merlot and Cabernet, it offers rich, complex flavors of blackberries, cherries, currants, dark chocolate, herbs, spices and cedar. Shows lots of fanciness for this price. Editors' Choice."
Smooth & Supple
I thought this was not bad for the price. I like the Cameron Hughes concept of using various grape sources.
