This is a high end Napa Cabernet. It needs some time, but it is quite good. The retail is $95, so certainly it is not within everyone's budget. Purple in color. The nose has cassis and chocolate. Also a bit of graphite. On the palate, those flavors carry through. The fruit is pretty ripe. Lots of black raspberry and plum fruit. Slight heat on the finish that I suspect will calm down with some bottle age. This should improve by a point or two with a few years in the cellar and be good for a decade after. Will work with heavier foods and on its own.
