From a magnum. Decanted for sediment than back into the bottle to settle for five hours. An elegant Bordeaux-like quality. Wouldn't guess Napa if you didn't know. Fully evolved, with very soft tannins and bright fruit that is still hanging in there...barely. Probably time to drink up in the normal format, but the Mags should hold well for another few years.
Lovely stuff; perfectly mature Cabernet with gentle red and dark fruited flavours framed by developed earthy, cedary and spicy notes. There's a sense of restraint and lightness to the flavours, resolved tannins and bright acids that make it very easy to drink. Wish more Cali Cabs delivered like this.
