very nice aged cali cab, still alive and kicking with some fruit and also some secondary stuff -- leather, cedar, plum compote, it was also elegant -- funny that we commented about the fact that it was more understated than the D. Laurent '93 burg we had alongside
Pop/pour. Initially a bit tight and tired both on the nose and palate. 45 minutes in the glass really opens this up. On the nose, secondary aromas, Dentyne-like cinnamon, sweet leather and cedar, all of which carry to the palate. Palate is medium-bodied and fully resolved. Not particularly lush mouthfeel, but continues to add weight and lushness even as it passes the hour mark. Medium to medium long finish. Based on this bottle, an hour decant would be in order.
