Another stellar wine from one of the best producers in Napa.  This is still quite tight but with air opened up beautifully.  That said, this still needs time.  Inky purple in color.  The nose is classic, old school Napa cabernet.  Cassis, slight pencil lead, and a slight violet notes on the nose.  On the palate, this has a great juicy texture.  Almost seamless.  Again, give this a few years and this probably merits a perfect score.  Cassis, graphite and cedar notes.  Long finish.
