    Absolutely phenomenal, so elegant and complete, this wine makes you re-think what you know about Napa Cabernets with its aromas of ripe, dark red cherries, blackberries, cassis, floral components, bay leaves, cigar box, espresso and potting soil. The palate was rich and elegant with silky velvety tannins, lush dark fruit, crushed stones, with a long, layered and structured finish, consistently evolving in the glass. Drink now or over the next 20 years.
