Tasting NotesFrom the cellar. Not a Napa Cab that immediately floors you with intensely ripe fruit or exquisite smoothness, rather, a subtle charmer with hidden depth for the patient who take their time to quaff the many layers of cassis, spice and toasted oak on offer. Tart acidity helps keep the dry palate fresh and composed with well structured tannins and juicy dark fruit completed by a lengthy finish of plums and oak spice. Drinking well now, but to get the most of this beauty I recommend you squirrel it away for another year. Drink 2013-2016.
