2014 Alpha Omega Era  (Napa Valley) 95

Inky in color, this is full bodied, powerful, fresh, sweet and fleshy. With equal portions of black and blue fruits, licorice, vanilla tones and the structure/tannins, along with density and lift to demand some ageing. This will be much better in 3-5 years. The wine was made from a barrel selection from all of their top vineyards.
