$99.95
WA95

This plush, superripe, spicy, chocolaty red is required drinking for Napa Valley hedonists. This is such a killer bottle of wine, year in and year out. Russell, we are not worthy! The Wine Advocate loved its “pure blackberries, black cherries and blueberries with bay leaves and black pepper plus a touch of cedar. The palate is medium to full-bodied, fresh, grainy and harmonious, finishing long and juicy.” Grab this while you still see it!
