Showing great now. Gave it an hour and it evolved over the next 4. Starts with nose of dusty strawberries, sandalwood, leather, and earth. Resolved tannins, blackberry, sour cherry, and a little black raspberry. Definitely a tartness to the fruit. Shows some age too with a little prune and leather.
This wine is a sentimental favorite as it was the first wine we had at a tasting 10 years ago on my wife and my (almost) first date. — 22 days ago
Yet another Napa Quake survivor. Probably my favorite winery and wine (really the Cabernet Franc) this old friend (was going to gal, but trying stay under the radar) held up just fine. @LaJotaVineyards — 14 days ago
Great wine! Napa at is best. Black fruit, after 13 years still very young. Could have age 5 more years. — 9 hours ago
Blend of 60% Merlot, 39% Cabernet Franc & 1% Petit Verdot, aged for 18 months in 25% new French oak. Deep Ruby with aromas of dark ripe fruit and sweet spice notes from a warm harvest. On the palate flavors of black cherry, blueberry and plum with soft sweet vanilla spice, cacao and cedar. Fine tannins, long finish ending with balanced mineral wrapped in espresso, cacao and oak. Nice!! — 18 days ago
