This is always one of the great wines out of Napa. The blend is 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Petit Verdot, and 3% Malbec. Inky purple in color. The nose is very nice with cassis and coffee. On the palate, this has medium tannins. Black cherries, cassis and some char. It is delicious. This was consumed over three nights and was best on night three though excellent on all three. This still needs a few more years until peak and then should be good for another ten to twelve at least. The score certainly has a point or two more of upside. There is a depth and complexity to it that really didn't show up until night 2. If opening now, it should be given plenty of air. This will for great with a steak or roast but also drinks quite well on its own.
