Seamless Napa beauty crammed with allspice, cardamom and grilled sweet peppers, dusty rose and caramel cream pie. Unoppressive while still banging out scads of dark cherry, delicate burnt chocolate and massive cassis with chalky tannins kicking in powerfully at all the right places. The subtlety of this wine on the palate is a persuasive argument to its infinite balance. On one hand effusive, on another, charmingly powerful, and all the way through: DELICIOUS.
This little dream-team wonder hits WAAAAAAY over its price-point.
