One of the historic names from Napa, it's always a pleasure to see a bottle end up at the table. This is true to form. Purple in color with ruby swirls. The nose is classic with cassis, slight bell pepper, a touch of chocolate and some fresh cut lumber. On the palate, still young with firm tannins. Plenty of cassis fruit and some oak. Needs another few years to develop and mature. That said, it is drinking fine today as well. Good drinking for 15 years at least. This will work well with roasted or grilled meats and/or fowl. These days it's a pretty good value in Napa Cabs.
