Decanted for 3 hours, had 2 glasses, rebottled, and finished two days later. Notes from the 3rd day...
On the nose: a little vanilla and spice to add complexity to a blueberry, boysenberry fruit forward aroma. On the palate: Soft, same purple fruits which evolve to some tart cherry on the finish. Some tannins... but not dominant on the finish. Supple, but not heavy mouth feel. Solid performance. First and only bottle - would try this again... very good QPR at $27!
Lovely balance, great wine from first sip to the end of the 2nd bottle with 2 dinner guests. All agree that it's a great drinking cab. Lots of life left but I don't see a lot more depth or complexity coming...will be drinkable for several years, but why wait. Not the highest qpr, but a definite pleaser!
This is an exquisite wine with dense fruit and excellent structure. I shared the bottle with staff after work and over the hour it went from really delicious to terrific. It is perfectly structured. And I did not even let it rest from shipping! Well worth the price and half again as much.
