Another blast from the past. Bought at the winery, and transported around South Carolina and Georgia quite a bit, in somewhat suspect storage conditions, this one made it through OK. Far from being dead, it really was not ready yet. Young, this was heavily oaked, with grinding tannins, and some green pepper. After 13 years, the aging has brought the real Cabernet flavors to the forefront. Currant, cassis, tobacco, tar, mature black fruit. The acid, tannins, and oak are just now starting to integrate. Cocoa, caramel and tar on the 2 minute finish. Wish I would have bought a lot more.
