A nice, solid Napa Cabernet. At 15.6%, this is not shy although the alcohol is not noticeable. Purple in color, opaque and bright. The nose is nice with cassis, cedar and spice. Medium tannins. Full bodied. On the palate, this drinks smooth and easy. Cassis notes with a touch of cedar. Nice finish. Drinking well now and should continue for the next five to eight years. A nice wine with a steak or burger.
