Good stuff. Mineral nose, with hints of cherries, vanilla and oak on the nose. Touch of oak, slight tannins, with cola, cherry vanilla and hint of cinnamon and iron on the palate. Beat out 2007 Kobalt for WOTN.
Benchmark Oakville cab in this price range IMHO. Clear ruby with sediment. Decant and aerated for 1 hour. Nose not as expressive as the taste. Dense dark fruits highlighted with raspberry and good acidity. Nice oak but not overwhelming. Well blended and developed now. Improved from last bottle we drank 6 months ago. Can still go at least five years.
