My last tasting note was in the format used for my wine course. By the time we got to this bottle the group was deep into a card game so I reverted to my old style and jotted a few notes on this super yummy wine.

Inky AF.  This is one dark purple, brooding beast.  Rich blackberry, ripe plums, cedar, Iodine and black cherry.  Stunning.  The palate is super duper Napa Valley.  Sunshine galore gives rich black fruits, silky tannins and medium acidity.  This is one stunner at 93 points.  I believe newer vintages are running a Benji. 5 stars. Drink till 2025. Ps. If this was a blind tasting, I would have guessed Napa all day long, but incorrectly identifying it as a Cab Sav. Very similar taste profile, but way less tannins in this varietal. Salut….
