Taking one whiff of this wine reveals all. Napa Cabernet done in a fruit forward style. Jammy plums and red currants closeted in an oak drape. A powerful wine that probably needs some time to integrate and take on some secondary flavors. Right now, the tannins are delicious and will hold it together for a while. Excellent acidity bring the package in nicely, yet I am somewhat bothered by this style of wine. I prefer seduction and finesse as you know. If you like it in your face, this is one for you, but take warning. It is priced at $75 and only got a 91 point pro rating. I would only go with 90, and considering the price and style, 2 stars. This is a big commitment, I can think of many better uses for the cash.
