Opaque purple with a ruby rim. Nose of plum preserve, mulling spices and mocha. On the palate dark fruits, dark chocolate and vanilla oak. Low acid and tannins are dissolving. Good length on the finish. Amazing QPR.
Solid cab that has the structure to be something very nice, but lacks the tannins to pull it off. So this will be stuck as a solid, go too wine that drinks above it's price. does seem tight and should relax with a little more time.
