Sweet big black fruit aromas that are expansive in the
mouth and evocative of blackberries, licorice, chocolate covered cherries and cocoa powder.
Slightly higher ripeness than past vintages with well integrated tannins that balance nicely with
the sweet toasty oak. Distinctive character, with rich palate coating textures and lots of layers and
depth - this is benchmark Napa Valley Cabernet!
The first comment out of my mouth when I had this wine was Napa. This wine has a smooth burgundy color. The nose reveals blackberry, plum, licorice, black currant, and oak. The taste is very similar. Big sweet black fruit which is tied in with oak all the way through. This is a pure napa valley cab.
