Served as a pirate with a larger "Bordeaux crowd". Consistent to my last tasting note. Great fruit and great aromatics. Cabernet France at its best, made in a modern style but not overly so. Very popular wine at the table.
Wines With A View (Capitol Grille Tasting Event) (The Spire): This was one of my favorites of the tasting. Totally open and accessible, seems to be maturing early and opening up beautifully. Cedar and smoke scents swirl in the glass, with violets and damp earth as well. Very complex, dynamic and energetic structure. Lots of Italian style earth and leather. Powerful tannins. Nothing like a French or Napa Cabernet Franc. This would be hard to criticize.
