Region: Napa Valley, CA
Young as it may be, this wine is tasting beautifully now and definitely a wine to watch, and taste, as it evolves with age.
In the glass, this wine appears rich and dense with a purple hue. The nose is delightful with black and blue fruits, mocha, eucalyptus and bakeshop spice. The palate is intense and bold with a full mouthfeel. Savor black cherry, black currants, clove, anise and dark chocolate. Good to the last drop, with hints of vanilla on the finish.
