$48, 5 stars, 93 points, cabernet sauvignon, california, Napa, napa cabernet
I tasted this wine when it was much younger. It was appealing then and more so now. Very rich purple, semi opaque. The nose is very fruity with blackberry jam, blackcurrants, toasted oak. The palate is really delightful with warm blackberry ganache, coconut, eucalyptus and iodine. On the midpalate I start to sense some tannic buzz, nothing overpowering. Gobs more black fruit reduction and a charcoal note. The finish marries up some acidity, just a touch to complete the mouthfeel and balance this very fruit-forward Napa Cab. 93 points and 5 stars for this $48 bottle. Drink till 2029. Salut….
