$120, 5 stars, 94 points, cabernet sauvignon, california, Napa
Second tasting of this wine- it has either evolved quickly or there is some bottle variation going on. Opaque, like nearly black in the glass. This Napa Cab has a pronounced nose of blackberry, menthol, eucalyptus, tart blackcurrant, black plum and French oak nuance of spices and chocolate. On the palate it is very smooth and dry with fine-grained tannins and medium acidity. Balanced to a tee- it’s delicious stuff. I get the dark fruit notes and oak integration, waiting for more tertiary development. This wine is drinking beautifully now but will develop over the next 5-10 years. 94 points for this full bodied gem that runs $120 and gets 5 stars from me. I would drink this sans food, it is so silky and delicious all by itself. Salut….
