Sweetly toasted spice on the nose is all about oak and a candy shop. Theres some blackberry fruit here but it more about the spice at this point. Very fresh on entry and bright with juicy acids and fine grained tannins supporting clear, fresh blackberry and cherry fruit that is wrapped up in a gauze of vanilla and oak spice. The oak is decidedly more obvious on the nose than the palate where this remains rather light and elegant with attractive underlying minerality on the rather long, juicy black berry and black cherry toned finish. This is very well balanced with good energy in the mouth. 93pts

  • 77883DM94523 I have to recommend the District Cabernet series from Raymond Vineyards. Each of these wines is from a specific AVA within the Napa Valley (Calistoga, Rutherford, Oakville, St Helena) and retails for around $75. Winemaker Stephanie Putnam (formerly of Far Niente) really knows her Cab!
