This has rounded out significantly since release and is now in a good window. Juicy red fruit profile with some medium oak tones. Medium-full body. Fine grained tannins remain on the medium finish. Has the acidity to pair with several foods.
Good stuff - refined palate - not sure I would have picked out as a cali cab but definitely a cabernet based wine. Oddly slightly hollow in the middle - wonder if there was a whiff of TCA as this felt like it had the bones of something wonderful but just failed to deliver. I'm normally very sensitive to TCA so it may not be that but...I shall certainly seek out another bottle and if it's as wonderful as this hints at having the potential to be...this shall definitely be regarded as slightly corked.
