This is a nice solid Napa Cabernet that often shows up on restaurant lists. Purple in color, opaque and bright. The nose has cassis, coffee, slight chocolate and a slight herbal note. Full bodied. Medium tannins. On the palate, lots of cassis, some chocolate and just a hint of spice. Nice finish. This drinks nicely on its own and will work great with a steak or burger. Drink over the next five to eight years.
