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.
