This is the basic Napa Cab from Mending Wall.  In general, I found it to be a bit tighter and less opulent than the single vineyard ones.  It is still an excellent Cabernet and, of course, a bit less expensive.  Inky purple in color.  The nose is tight but shows some cassis and spice.  On the palate, this is medium to full bodied.  Firm tannins.  Deep with tight layers of cassis, spice and slight earthiness.  Good finish.  This needs about seven to ten years until peak and should be good for another ten after that.
