($39) Slightly medicinal aromas of redcurrant, cedar, cigar box and mint. Juicy and nicely delineated in the mouth, with redcurrant, tobacco, mineral and floral flavors. Offers good freshness and length. The flavors are claret-like, dry and adult, but the tannins are nicely ripe. Includes a trace of malbec (1%) for the first time. An excellent vintage for this bottling.

Parker gave this a 94? Well, that's what my friend who ordered it told me. Flat with less flavor than I expected. Not a particularly long finish. Overrated.

About Napa Valley

Napa Valley is the most famous wine-growing area in the U.S. It begins at the base of Mount St. Helena in the north and tapers off some 30 miles to the south into the floodplain where the Napa River enters San Francisco Bay. From Mount St. Helena to the city of Napa, the valley is defined by two north-south ridgelines of the Coast Range Mountains.
