Much much more elegant than so many Napa Cabs. Mint, tobacco, cassis, and loads of acidity to balance.

Plum, cassis, mint, anise and a touch of tobacco. Classic Napa cab with acidity that won’t quit and alcohol that doesn’t overpower.

A classic Napa Cabernet that show true varietal character with low alcohol and not a lot of new oak.

Total throwback to old Napa. All tannin and acid, dust and fruit. The beginning of a legendary wine.

Great balance, old world inspired (or Steve would say, classic Napa). One of the more accessible ‘13 cabs I’ve had.

r. @ Bistro jeanty in yountville. Still very young. Like a young Bordeaux. Excellent acidity, bright blue and black fruits, with still pretty crisp but not at all astringent tannins. Pop and pour. Definitely a decant is in order. Opened up nicely over the course of the meal. Really quite delicious.

Dark cherries, plum, should have given it time but today ok.

Oh wow. First time having the Cabernet from Matthiasson. This is amazing and exactly what I’d want from a Cali cab. Dark fruit, tannin, somewhat big and very smooth. Delicious.
