Tuesday, December 18, 2012 - This is very good. Lots of fruit on the nose, with a hint of green pepper, maybe? The initial palate tastes a lot like a young cab: lots of red berry tastes, but the finish is smooth. Not a lot of pepper on the finish, but still good.
I did not pick up the strong oak hints that others in their reviews had mentioned. That may be because I let mine rest for longer after shipment; I'm not sure.
