A very nice wine for the price, I enjoyed it even more the second day. Definitely some bottle to bottle variation, which is not unusual, but the last two bottles were definitely a more balance wine than the first bottle sampled months ago.

Nice wine, medium body fruit, tannin, definite strong herbal overtones - just started on the bottle, so we'll see how it develops - getting better, just tried with some 85% dark chocolate;
2 days later: just upgrade it from 86 to 88 - don't know how I didn't finished it sooner, but even better a couple days later, more subtle herbal.

Fruit forward with some tannins to help balance, held up well for 2nd day. It got better a day or two later - not quite as fruit forward (I like fruit, but not too much).... would probably up to a 85 or 86.

Was a little light for a cab (in fruit and body), but okay otherwise. I have a few more bottles and will see if they are different.
