2003 Vine Cliff Cabernet – Oakville

Napa Cabernet, sometimes you just need a whiff to know where it is from.  Light dust, graphite, vanilla, anise, and cherry are the aromas that let me know this is from Napa.  The light dust was the dead giveaway.  Great tannins in this wine, I do believe this is just about the right time to drink this wine.  Some fruit on the palette but for the most part this wine is all back end delivering great depth and drinking well right now and I can’t see this getting much better. (A-)
