This is a Napa wine made in the style of a right bank Bordeaux blend. Mostly Merlot with some Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Purple/ruby in color, mostly clear and bright. The nose is nice with cherries, black cherries, slight chocolate, cigar box and slight earthy funk. Full bodied. On the palate, this has light tannins. Flavors of black cherries, some spice with underlying earthiness. Good balance. Delicious. Nice finish. This is drinking well now but may still get better as it matures. Drink over the next ten to twelve years. This drinks well on its own and will work great with roast duck or chicken.
