Flirting with perfection...This wine's opaque plum/purple color is accompanied by a beautiful nose of sweet creme de cassis, a touch of background oak (only 40% new oak is used), spice box, cedarwood, black cherries and a hint of spring flowers. The complex, intense aromatics are followed by a deep, opulent, multidimensional, full-bodied wine with not a hard edge to be found. Everything is seamlessly crafted in this beauty and the vintage's abundant richness is well-displayed. This 2012 can be drunk in its exuberant youthfulness or cellared for another 20-25 years.

Yeah, I know, too young. Such is the nature of most restaurant lists. Still, a stunning wine to share with the Vinous map team during our research of Yountville vineyards.

Great wine on a great vintage. still pick up many of those herbal notes. Different from the Napanook in its sheer balance and elegance.

Elegant and structurally balanced, but I wish there was a bit more concentration and longer finish.
