2005, Proprietary Blend, Mount Veeder, Napa
Beautiful, deep blue center transforming into brick red edges, vibrant and translucent to the eye. Sweet aromatic red fruits, of strawberry and cherry, with cassis, and licorice in the nose. Lots of sassafras and clove with kiwi, star fruit, a slight charred oak and sweet vanilla that gives way to a big explosion of fruit in the mouth. This wine has big powerful fruit and a pronounced licorice element running long into the finish.
