Yates Family Vineyard-Sisters-Mount Veeder-Napa Valley-California-2010-14.6% Alcohol-$46.00-A nose of dark fruit and some spice, dark garnet in color. A medium to full bodied red blend, not quite sure varieties but would guess Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and maybe Cabernet Franc. A bit disjointed, maybe too young to drink, blackberry, blueberry, still tight with spice on finish. Will try another bottle in a year or so. NR CR-88 Good with meats, chicken, pasta.

A full bodied red, with blackberry, cassis, espresso, finishes with spicy chocolate, an enjoyable wine, still young. WS-91 WE-91 CR-90 Good with meats, chicken, pasta.
