Someone left this bottle and I opened tonight. Was actually expecting less, but opened up to an enjoyable glass. Dark ruby red. Black fruit, herbs, cedar. Smooth, but some heat that follows at the end. Decent weeknight bottle. Definitely improves with air.

Magnum. Sandwiched between the 2 great vintages of 2013 and 2015 in Napa, 2014 seems to be the forgotten one, yet this generous Napa cab looks to be very promising. Fruit forward, but with good layer and structure. Maybe 2014 is where one can find better value.

Too much of a bite for me. You'll probably like it, Rachel

Surprisingly good. Nicely structured but good balance and accessible 90

Was really impressed at first sip. Incredibly flavorful and perfectly balanced. Jack and I both loved it.

Mostly black currant and cocoa powder. Some vanilla on the back end. Tannins are there, but barely noticeable. Pretty smooth and easy to drink all around. Could work with or without food.

Not for me - not refined, harsh and too "alcoholy"

A lovely deep Cabernet, marries well with sharp/smoked cheeses
