Since I last enjoyed this wine 18 months ago, it seems to have developed more complexity and much of the earthiness, and tertiary notes have really started to balance the fruit. Although the blackberry, cassis, cherry, and plums are still evident, the tobacco, black olive, damp black soil, eucalyptus, and coffee are more pronounced. Wonderfully balanced with tannins, oak, and acidity all in harmony. Big and full bodied in the mouth and definitely has the muscle to stand up to a juicy, chargrilled ribeye steak. Long finish. Has significantly improved since my last tasting. Although this producer's Merlot has been les than appealing, the Cabernet Sauvignons have been rock solid. This will easily cellar for another 7-10 years.
