An immense effort, dark, rich and deeply concentrated, packed with layers of rich currant, chocolate, mocha, cherry and herbal nuances. Finishes with a powerful, persistent aftertaste, rich, ripe tannins and wonderful complexity. 12,280 cases made.
Unbelievably still in excellent shape! Color: Deep red center, velvety garnet edges, vibrant and silky tones! Lighter than in its you but not showing much maturity in the brick color department. Sign of a very well made wine. Nose: Beautiful aromas of fresh berries, sage, mulled currants, some mature aromas of fall leaves, cassis and cedar a little bit of toasty oak. Palate: Full and silky, tannins give body and structure, but in a supple, inviting way, security with a velvet blanket...the fruit fans out but is in check, framed with some fresh herbs and subtle spice, this is classic Napa Valley Cabernet before the fruit bombs started dropping!
