Astrid scored this wine: 91/100
it's tried and true, and it rarely disappoints, unless of course you're looking for something that is not a Napa Valley cab sauv in the $40 range. big, bold and bright on the nose with loads of new oak influence; red and black berry fruit with slightly creamy and vanilla bean notes. Sweet fruit mingles with toasty new oak, nice ripe tannins and good balance. like comfort food, very satisfying. best with grilled or roasted meats, dry cheeses, the darkest chocolate, dried fruits and nuts.
