Dark black in color, the nose gives aromas of fresh raspberries and ripe, red cherries with notes of vanilla and cocoa powder. Background notes come through over time of roasted coffee bean and a touch of pencil lead. The palate is smooth and rich with ripe, developed tannins giving the wine a full arc in the mouth and giving flavors of blackberry and a hint of smoky, sweet oak.
Big & Bold
I met my husband at this winery (we both loved the Cabernet long before that). It is juicy and delicious, with fruit and earth and spice and all so smooth and round - one of the best Napa Cabernets and a deal when you taste others in this price range.
