This is a well endowed, Bordeaux blend from Napa. It is full throttle and delicious although some may not like that style. Inky purple in color, opaque and bright. The nose has black raspberries, plums, graphite, cedar, and anise. Firm tannins. Full bodied. On the palate, the black raspberries come thru in spades with some underlying char and graphite. Great lush texture. 15.6% abv. Long finish. No noticeable alcohol on the palate other than the texture. This drinks better on its own right now, but would work with roasted meats or fowl. Drink over the next few years to enjoy the ride but if you like it young, you will still like it over the next ten years. Personally, I liked it.
