Another solid vintage. 87% Cabernet Sauvignon. (Balance made up of small amounts of Merlot, Malbec, Petite Verdot and Cabernet Franc). Dark ruby color. Aromas and flavors of dark cherry, plum and black currants with hints of tobacco, chocolate and black licorice. Juicy with very firm tannins. Big, rich and brooding. Good now, but would be better with food or some additional bottle age. Thank You Keith S!

2018 vintage. Darker, denser and currently more hushed than most Napa cabs. Elegance with staying power.

Very nice. Typical high end California cab: not super complex, but far from boring. Iā€™m not sure Iā€™d pay for it, but what a lovely gift.
