When I hear Napa Cab my taste buds get started. Yum. This one is dark in color with a slightly sweet nose with some cherries and dark fruits coming through. On the mid pallet the wine starts out with varietal cherries coming through but ending quickly. The finish is on the lighter side of medium with not a lot of complexity. I was kind of disappointed in this wine, especially for the money. I found it thin and not terribly complex. I would give it an 88 or so. Not bad, but not fabulous either.

Tasting Note
A youthful and promising Napa Cab. Offers up a wallop of cassis, red and black plum, blueberry, raspberry, dark chocolate, vanilla and coffee. Dry, yet exuberantly flavourful, this wine is wonderfully plush and concentrated, sporting ripe tannins and a silky texture. Cellar 2-3 years or enjoy tonight with an herbed steak cooked rare.
