Boys night out. OS in the house. 16 is good to go. Previous vintages pip this, but no complaints.

Dark ripe fruit followed by some cedar and graphite notes. Friendly tannins that really integrate well with a bit of food. Lots of power but also lots of pleasure!

At Canyon Village Yellowstone. A little flatter profile than I was expecting, but still very drinkable.

Had to try the 2016 vintage and I think it is better than ‘15. Of course it’s fruit driven but it seems to have more depth and be more balanced. Blackcurrant, vanilla, baking spice and some lightly bitter cacao on the palate. I think for the price this a great ‘heavy’ Napa Cabernet. A good Papillon should hopefully mean that there is a good Mercury Head to be tasted; looking forward to finding out.

You never forget your first. I loved the movie with Steve McQueen and this wine is as cool and smooth as he was.
