New Years Eve - Family Friends and Fun: Ripe cab nose. blackberry, pencil, pepper. mid is ripe and young. sweet fruit dominate but the core is very present - with clean acidity and a bit of a tannic grip. scipy notes in the middle mix well with the black and red fruit. excellent wine!
This needs time. Ignore the 2014 CT end of optimum drinking window. This has at least 5 years. Decanted and sipped right away. This had mouth drying tannins and the good acidity. toward the end of the 2 hours of sipping with great bone in ribeye, this started to show some oak. Needs time to flesh itself out. Another good wine by Cadence.
Loved this wine tonight. Paired nicely at aqua (el gaucho) with both spicy and more rich foods. Was ready after about 30 minutes in the decanter with an open nose of both fruit and some nice barrel notes with a medium/full body very well integrated tannins and smooth structure. Drinking well now!
