This is a Cabernet made by Thomas Rivers Brown, one of Napa's top winemakers. Purple in color. The nose has cassis, some pencil lead and a bit of chocolate and spice. Very tight on the palate, give this time or air. Cassis fruit and spice. Very deep. As it opens up over a couple of hours, it is delicious. Precise. Good balance. Nice finish. Worked well with food. This has some upside to it and really shouldn't be opened for a few years. Should last twenty years though so no hurry.
