This is the base bottling from one of the better producers of Napa Cabernet. The grapes come from Larkmead Vineyard. Purple in color. The nose has cassis, spice, and a bit of floral notes. On the palate, this is lush. Medium tannins. Lots of cassis over a bit of dry earth and slight vanilla. Long finish. This will continue to mature and improve for another five to ten and be good for another decade and a half after that. It is delicious right now on its own and will need bolder foods. As it matures it will offer a broader array of possibilities.
