Expert Reviews

Bright red-ruby. Aromas of redcurrant, bitter cherry, tarry oak and bitter chocolate. Juicy flavors of blackberry, redcurrant and spicy oak, with a slightly dusty note of coffee grounds. Nicely balanced wine with good texture and decent concentration.

The fruit is certainly there but it sits behind the earthy tannin. Really delicious. I would buy it when I see it for less than $60, but not for the $75 that some sell it for.

From Mount St. Helena to the city of Napa, the valley is defined by two north-south ridgelines of the Coast Range Mountains.
