I can't believe that I'm saying 94, but it was truly that good. Yes it was decanted, and yes we waited another 15 minutes, but the layers of taste, and the extremely deep flavors kept me wanting more. In a more relaxed atmosphere this could have been a 2 bottle night.
I was very concerned when I opened this and the cork split halfway - usually a very bad sign. Poured through the vinturi with the strainer and let breathe for a short period. Well, dodged the bullet, this is phenomenal cab with lots of layers, plenty of dark red fruit, black cherry, ripe plum, very nice acidity and fine grained tannins. Very happy that we cracked this open when we did.
