Solid blend, smooth and well balanced. Initially rated at 90 Pts, I upgraded 10/3/20. With enough air this wine is outstanding. Dry with grippy tannins, but wonderful red fruit, cassis, and hints of tobacco flavors. Very enjoyable watching this wine evolve.

Nice dry red, notes of vanilla and oak but not overbearing with tannins. Aged nicely, good to know the bottles still in the cellar have some more years to go.

Great red blend with nuanced acidity that lingers beautifully on the finish. Super extracted red that you can barely see your fingers through. Not the most abundance on the nose, hints of vanilla and oak. Eucalyptus and mint. On the palate , Blackberry and some hints of vanilla and cassis. This is a big holiday wine. 14.7%

A flavorful dry taste with full aroma and a good amount of residual tannin.

Nice blend, though not as good as the cab sav direct.
