Did you ever find a bottle in your cellar and think to yourself "where the hell did this come from?" Well, this is that bottle, I have no clue but it showed up on a search of cabernet and was ripe for the pickings. Took this to a holiday party where it was promptly consumed.
Dark color, hints of charcoal. Nose of cassis and medium toasted oak. It certainly reflected the cabernet heritage with a bit of old school California sauvignon. Tannins are rounded out but acid still holds everything together. Silky mouthfeel and medium short finish.
this is drinking quite well. Open and decanted. It took about half an hour to start to come around, and continued to improve for the couple hours the bottle was open. dark fruits and sonoma cab earthiness on the nose and palate. Tannins were abundant but in balance, suggesting this could go longer. 90-91
