This used to be a go to wine, but its been a few years, so it was a pleasure to be able to revisit this Bordeaux Blend. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Petite Verdot. Purple in color. The nose has cassis, cherries and spice. With air some plums come out. On the palate, this has a lovely texture. Lots of juicy black currants, with black raspberries. Firm tannins. Nice balance. This has not yet been released and of course, will need a few years to really show what it has. I believe the release price will be around $80 which is fair for the quality from Napa. It will go well with a lot of medium or heavier foods but certainly steaks and roasts. If opening now, a 3 hour decant is a good idea.
