With beef tenderloin (and wine sauce), roasted mixed potatoes. Dark ruby, consistent color to the rim. Blueberry with perhaps a touch of violet on the nose. Dry, medium weight, raisin with the fruit, acid to balance, but not much tannin.
Our bottle was showing notes of dark berries, cacao, and cracked pepper. The oak definitely comes through at this stage however I didn't consider it to be overbearing. A very nice value cab in the low $20 range. Oh, and we visited their tasting room near Sonoma back in August and were treated exceptionally well there. Looking forward to trying their Half Mile Red which is chilling in the cellar for the time being.
