ruby, mild cassis aroma, balance earth and oak, muted red fruit flavor... still needs airtime: 88 first hour, 89 second hour, 90 third hour... a nice classic cab, but only a fair value, not worth seeking
One of their Library Releases. Popped and poured; synthetic cork (Supreme Cork??). Loads of beautiful dark fruit right out of the gate but the initial intensity wore off within the first ten minutes. While it didn't subside completely, it became very clear to me that this bottle was ready to drink. All of the tannins were soft as a goose down pillow and there are secondary characteristics showing: leather and decaying fruit. Nothing bad here but again, it's not going to "improve". If I had more, I would drink in the near term.
