Decanted for about 3hrs, back in bottle for 2hrs before drinking at Mastro's alongside the 2013 Cliff Lede BTK cab. No formal notes, just thoughts from memory. A sexy wine. Very plush and smooth on the pallet, with exceptional tannin management and terrific mouthfeel. It felt soft and velvety when compared against the BTK, which was more of a bruiser. The mid pallet is a bit less concentrated and powerful than I would ideally like, but I believe it is just a reflection of the vintage (as compared with '13). The finish is terrific - very long. A very graceful and elegant wine, I really love the winemaking here. 94+
