This is a very straight forward, tasty Napa Cab. Purple in color, ruby at the rim. Mostly opaque and bright. The nose has cassis, slight blueberries, spice, and smoke. Medium to full bodied. On the palate black raspberries and slight dark chocolate with underlying char. Easy to drink. Light tannins. Nice finish. Drink over the next five to eight years. This drinks well on its own and would be a nice match with a steak or burger off the grill.
