Purple /ruby in color, purple at the core. The nose is interesting with cassis, spice and slight mint. On the palate, this has a juicy texture. Thick tannins at the moment but those should ease after the first five years. Nice cassis over a dry earthy dirt. Good balance. Long finish. This is reasonably priced (on Napa Cab terms). It needs a few years and then should be good for at least a decade. It is great on its own, but give it air now. As a food match, it needs big foods or time.
