USA — California • $74.95 • 91/100

Deep, dark purple in colour, the rim is starting to show some red. Coffee-tinged and spicy aromas lead into a core of dense blackberry and plum fruit, with cedary resin underneath. The wine is dry, with balanced acidity, elevated alcohol and fine, persistent tannins. The fruit on the palate is juicy and ripe, edging into the jammy spectrum, but it remains focused and tight, giving an impression of elegance rather than easy generosity. Relative to the field, a good value for a pretty classic and restrained Napa Cab. • Tasted 2017-05-27 • LCBO id#718452 • Find it at your nearest LCBOROGERS & COMPANY (Agent)
