2014 vintage, and what a difference two years make. Solid wine. Still a fake.

Very fragrant, dark fruity, intense. Multistage experience. First sweet and pretty smooth, rounded mild, then you get surprised by this strange super ripe explosion in all corners of the mouth. Can't describe but like it a lot (Charles says young and dark). Very robust flavor overall, and pleasant just to drink because of clean finish and well balanced tastes and textures overall. Had on Christmas Eve with rosemary steak, kale with caramelized onions, and purple sweet potatoes.

Fashionable country resort in mid 20th century, popular with Hollywood due to 1892 stone Manor House and historic gardens. Dark Ruby with aromas of ripe berry fruits, herbs and spice for this blend with 86% Cab Sauvignon. On the palate black cherry and black currant flavors with oak and earthy notes. Well balanced, fine ripe tannins lingering ending with fruit and pepper spice! Nice! Drink over next decade.

Dark fruit more present than the others in the lineup. Slight mint, eucalyptus, dark cherry and raspberry, tannic finish.

Still vibrant ruby color. Flinty aroma. cherry. Strong aroma. High tannin. Medium acidity. Warming high alcohol sensation. Decanted first about two hours. Need some more. Flavors need to open up more still.

Great example of what a standard Napa Cab can deliver with good care and a bit of age. Dark cherry, oak, a bit of vanilla. Solid.

Very easy to drink! Good balance of oak, fruit (plums, cherry) and vanilla.
