Dark, dark purple color. Nose of ripe blackberries and plums, some leather and cedar. BIG, BIG palate - ripe blackberries and plums dominate, black licorice and a trace of tobacco leaf on the mid-palate. While, Ramey's Jericho Canyon is typically one of my favorite Cali Cabs because it has both beautiful fruit and layered nuances this one is riper and bolder. I am not sure it will reveal the kind of nuances I would expect with age from this vineyard given where it is at 10 years. Drink now or hold for 10 more years.
- Ruby color with medium forming legs and aromas of black currant, blackberry and cedar. It's balanced and has flavours of black currant with a medium/full body. Polished texture with a medium finish - Delicious and showing some age. Lots of plum and silky smoothness absolutely delicious with a light pasta and grilled octopus.
