Dark violet and ruby hues toward the rim of the glass. Lovely aromas of wild blackberries and sandalwood. Compared to many of its peers, this Napa Cab is restrained and evocative of Old World style winemaking. Sophisticated and approachable, this wine seamlessly expresses a balance between earth, fruit, and integrated tannins that are approachable early. Black currants, cool mint, and vanilla.
