OMG..Excellent after1.5 hour decant; now in its prime drinking window; This was a very smooth dark complex red & was fully opened up Enjoyed by all as tannins totally tamed and well integrated; nice legs; great QPR for $60
This has integrated nicely over the last couple of years, and is drinking well now. Nose of eucalyptus, mint, oak and spice. Still loads of dark and blue fruit, balanced nicely with soft tannins and mineral notes.
Maybe it is just my taste but this cab just does not do it for me. While I think it is decent, I know that I have had much better for less money. At about half the price the 07 groth we drank the same night was, in my opinion, a better wine. Of the 4 reds consumed, the other two a 05 aldo conterno barolo and a 04 hermatage, this was my least favorite and the only one that I thought did not justify it's price. The barolo and hermatage were outstanding!
