Another gorgeous California Cabernet. They are blessed in Napa. This one is drinking very well right now. Cassis, pencil lead and cedar on the nose. With air a slight cigar box emerges. On the palate, this is ripe but not over ripe. A classic example of Napa without being too far to the extreme. Cassis with some tobacco and fresh turned earth. Nice balance. The layers unwind in the glass; cassis, tobacco and cedar. Medium tannins still. This will certainly mature more over the next five years. Not sure it gets better. No hurry though, this has a decade left and likely more. It will go with medium and heavier foods and would be a classic pairing with a steak or prime rib.
