Two hour decant. Lovely rich color, still a little on the purple side. Pleasant nose largely of black cherries and currants, similar flavors. Not a terribly long finish. Very smooth. Could hope for more complexity but a very nice wine. If scoring, 90ish.

I opened this at the winery yesterday, about 33 hours ago, drinking really well now. On pop n pour, there is a bit of a thin feel with an herbal streak. Dark red fruit comes through now with a full bodied finish. Patience will be rewarded with this one. The acidity will allow this to age nicely. I agree with acorelli about the finish being a bit short. A good value at 40 for a Napa Cab. (Full disclosure, I work in tasting room at Merryvale, miss you guys!)
