A rare and superior wine. There's plenty to love here, beginning with a lower alcohol level (13.6%), slightly tart fruit, spice and perfect balance. Spice on the nose, too. A blend of black and lighter fruit and very impressive acidity. Fully integrated tannins. The proper work was obviously done in the vineyard. The restraint is the thing...
Decanted about 1 hour. Very nice cab that has gotten better with time. Smoother than a year ago and drinking very nicely right now. Strong hints of black pepper and smoke. Sorry to see the last of this group be gone.
Big, bold, blackcurranty New World style, integrated tannins. Straight out of the decanter with Vinturi and it's open and fruity. Lovely, bold and unashamedly modern. Let's see how it does over the next couple of hours! Very good. Next day it's not as good, but still pretty fruity.
