This is an excellent value in Napa Cabernet. Purple in color, mostly opaque and bright. The nose has cassis, spice and char. Full bodied with a powerful texture. Firm tannins. On the palate, lots of cassis with some underlying char. Nice depth. This is still very young and needs another five to seven years to approach maturity. It should be good for twelve to fifteen after that. Drinks well on its own and will work well with braised meats.
