4 hour decant on this, could use longer though. 14.75% ABV.
Blackberries, graphite, dill weed, coconut, what I call the Napa smell, and various florals that mingle into sweet perfume. Very interesting. Palate reflects most of that but I lose the coconut and dill and get more dust.
Nicely balanced and well rounded I think, nothing overwhelms anything else. Quite a nice bottle, and one of the best priced GIIIs that you can find.
Although youthful, this is a perfect example of wine from Beckstoffer vineyard. Sourced from Block F, a premium section of the vineyard, the wonderful balance of the wine certainly shows through the boldness of the fruit, with soft tannins. A classic Cabernet Sauvignon.
