Oh so good. Fruit and oak together and oh so smooth

Dark purply red in color. Definitely oaky on the nose with some earthy/herbal tones, less fruit forward and lush than a lot of Napa cabs. Once it opens up, there's a bit hit of vanilla. Full mouth feel but quick finish on the drier side. Finishes with cocoa. Mild tannins. Funky. Ok but prob wouldn't buy again at this price point.

Raspberries. Lots of oak and a little bit of dirt. Light mouthfeel with a fair bit of grip. Not a typical jammy Cali cab.

Silky yet sturdy. Had 2 glasses last week at Milton Inn for lunch, they were better. Perhaps they were 2012. Some anise on the nose, but I don't get a ton more. 90+ Update: bumped it a notch to be in line with previous ratings.
