“This tour-de-force captivates from the beginning with oh-so velvety smooth texture and a cornucopia of exquisite flavors. A modern-day version of the most classic Bordeaux blends, this Napa masterpiece offers up a charming bouquet of red currant, black plum, allspice, and lavender. The majestic palate delivers dark fruit richness, hints of baking cocoa, boysenberry and hints of Black Forest cake. The finish entices with Godiva dark chocolate, currants, blackberry, espresso, pipe tobacco that all linger gracefully for a full minute (leading us to ‘beg’ for another sip!). The mouthfeel is silky and the balance is impeccable, suggesting that it will cellar for 20+ years if that is a priority. Plus, this is a majestic red that will thrill now (decant prior to 2023). Absolutely amazing.” - California Wine Advisors
