2015 Pott Wine Cabernet Sauvignon Her Majesty's Secret Service Stagecoach Vineyard  (Napa Valley) 95

Boysenberry, hints of dark cocoa, earth and just a bit of truffle kick things off. But the petal hits the metal in this medium/full bodied, forward, structured wine with the elegant combination of present, but polished tannins and pure, fresh fruits on the palate and in the finish. You can drink this early for pleasure or age it a few years.
