Wow. Gorgeous wine. With time, this likely merits a 100 score. Inky purple in color. The nose is intense with cassis, blueberries, slight cedar, slight baking spices, and just a hint of Earl Gray tea. Full bodied. The fruit is ripe but not over the top. Cassis, blueberries over forest floor with slight cigar tobacco. This is already showing tight layering and lots of depth. Firm tannins. Long finish. Of course, to get to peak, this will need at least a decade, but it is likely to drink very well young with a bit of air. One of the best wines I tasted on a recent Napa trip. It needs big food or drink on its own.
