This is a very nice value in Napa Cabs. Of course, it is still an expensive wine, but that happens in Napa. Purple in color, ruby at the rim. The nose has cassis, sandalwood and other spices, and cigar box. Full bodied. Medium tannins. On the palate, this is big but not over the top. Lots of cassis with underlying earthiness/tobacco. It is delicious. Still young, this should easily mature for the next decade and probably two. Drinking quite well now though. It will go well with roasted meats or veggies.
