Dark, rich and ripe fruit notes of blackcurrant and ripe plum combine with dark chocolate, spice and a hint of rose petal. The palate is solid, dense and luscious, with great structure, velvety tannins and a long finish.
"Notable for richness and depth of flavor, the hallmarks of a
well-grown and well-made wine. Show classic Napa tannins,
ripe and firm, with deep, lush flavors of blackberries, black
currants, cassis, anise and cedar. Very fine now but young,
and should develop bottle complexity..."
"Smooth, rich and polished, showing layers of mocha-laced currant, blackberry and black cherry, with shades of anise and herb, framed by tight cedary oak and chewy tannins. Drink now through 2017. 4,529 cases made."
Smooth & Supple
Had not had in a while. Just as good as remember, but still not sure justifies the $40 price. Definitely a great bottle.
