Livermore Valley Tasting (My Place - Washington, DC): Deep purple color. Deep, dark, yet full of life on the nose: black currants, blueberries, black cherries, dark roast coffee, sweet clove, caramel and loamy soil. Full bodied with a firm tannic structure, medium-low acid. Black currants, blackberries, the fruit is rich and chewy. The wine is backed up by notes of smashed rocks, black pepper, pencil lead, dark chocolate and dark roasted coffee, slight hint of savory grilled steak. Deep, extracted, rich and toasty, this could use a few years to unwind. Aged 20 months in mostly new French and American oak.

Ruby color. Nose: dried red & black cherry, redcurrant, black raspberry, and blueberry with accents of tobacco, cedar, mocha, licorice root, Sichuan peppercorn, mulling & baking spices, toasted black fig, red rose, and leather. Medium/full body on the palate: dried red & black cherry, black raspberry, blackcurrant, and blueberry framed by tobacco, licorice root, cedar, Sichuan peppercorn, mulling spices, toasted black fig, black olive, and graphite. Medium+ acidity. Moderate/firm tannins. Lingering berry skin, licorice root, mulling spices, toasted black fig, and graphite on the long finish. A structured, elegant, expressive Cabernet true to its region and vintage. Pair with Beef Wellington, prime rib, lamb chops, pork stew, or bleu cheeses. Cellar for 1-2 years and drink over the following 3-6 years.

Decanted over 2 hours. This wine has really matured in the 4 years since I last had a bottle. Deep, dark red fruit, with smoke and pepper. What a nice Cab at this price point should taste like.

A bit of leakage around the cork. Not corked, but definitely not at its potential.

Yum! Not a wine for most. Leathery and very full bodied. Not subtle at all. You almost need a toothpick after drinking it. Still very young. Will wait a couple of years before opening the next.

Rivals top Napa cabs and cab based blends.
Big, bold, dark fruit on palate.
Tannins are fairly well integrated at this point... But...
Probably opened too soon, improved as it decanted over a couple of hours.

Still has aging left to do.
All in all, an excellent wine.
