Great wine, beautiful color, deep rich opaque garnet color. Nose of blackberries, cassis, black olives, and a *hint* of vanilla. On the palate, the wine had a nice mid length finish with more black fruit flavors and an earthy sort of garden soil nature. An olive flavor came through about 5-10 seconds followed by the loamy smoothness. 4 glasses later...I debated opening another bottle, but decided to hold that thought for another time.

Nice cabernet from Joseph Phelps
Score: 88 points
Drink by: Now to 2 years
Very dark in the glass. This is a nice, medium weighted cabernet. Tannins are focused, but do not over dry. Lots of lush dark fruit and cassis with hints of oak and soft spice. Finish lasts very long and is very smooth. A good all-around wine from a top Napa producer.
