Decanted 3 hours. Dark color, some bricking, lots of sediment. On the nose, lots of toasty oak, coffee, some heat. Flavors of mint, chocolate, cassis. Full bodied, with any acidity well hidden yet not what I would characterize as 'flabby'. Finishes with sweet mostly resolved tannin and a tinge of heat.
This is good, but shows a lot of oak and seems to be having a hard time holding its 15.1% alcohol in check. Went very very well with Kobe ribeye.
Outstanding Cali Cab! Immediately got a smokey, vanilla nose, with lots of red berries. Just fantastic and improved over an hour in the glass. The tannins were very present, yet smooth and chewy at the same time. Just a gorgeous wine and so pleasant to drink.
A powerful nose filled with black and blue fruit, earth, coffee, licorice and smoke opens to a rich, intense, dense, full bodied wine. Deeply colored, this concentrated, young, California Cabernet Sauvignon ends with a long, rich, fleshy mouth full of ripe, black, blue and red fruit, jam and chocolate.
