Appears far younger than its age, a soft purple ruby. Nose of spice and leather, menthol. More primary than I expected, as well. Not made in the mold of the more modern CA Cab bombshells, this isn't a va-voom of a wine. A bit more intellectual than hedonistic, but with the acidic intensity I've found in a bunch of early 90s Rafenelli Cabs. Very pleasant to drink, a real food wine, if a bit less depth than I would have liked, and perhaps a little short on the finish.
