This is made I see 15% alcohol on a Californian wine label and I am delighted: at least, the wine might be too sweet,...

Quite surprising as there is a lot of tannin. A bit closed for the moment, as the dark fruit notes seem to be held in...

Linear in tasting, but may evolve in time

Description: Deep ruby in colour with a medium+ intense nose. This wine features cedar, plums, mulberry, blackcurrants, cassis, licorice, turmeric, espresso, dried Provencal herbs, spinach and spearmint. Medium body with medium+ tannins, good acidity, a long length and alcohol is well integrated.

Negatives: Some heat from the 14.5% alcohol on the finish

Interesting Point: Unusual high 15% alcohol for a Napa Cab, but lucky that it doesn’t show it on the taste

Drink on its own in the next 5 to 10 years on its own or pair it with Braised Pork Shanks with Peppers and Oregano.

Tasted: 6 Oct 2015

Score: 8.5+/10, Value: 8.5/10 (Sale price: 8.5+/10) Total: 17+/20

Out of 5 stars, I rated this wine: 3.5+

LCBO: 255513
