This was a gorgeous wine. Drinking in a great spot. Nose is good, but does not tell the tale of how great the wine tastes. Velvety mouthfeel and nuanced flavors. Long finish. Drank with a 2012 M Etain and this outshines it right now although some guests picked the M Etain.
Happy Birthday to me (67 I think). Had with incredible prime rib and other appropriate goodies (Chile en Nogales appetizer during halftime of Seahawks/Bronco game). Just an elegant cab. Smooth, balanced fruit/complexity and hidden tannins at first which became present after 15 minutes and also very balanced. Medium body and finished. Always a favorite. Drinking well now. Does not really need a decant.
