From MAGNUM. The wine took only 30 minutes to fully open. Loads of hard leather, tobacco and cassis with some pencil shavings and dried herbs. Only at the finish did the overripe blackberries emerge. Color was solid, as was fill and cork. Very modest amount of sediment. This Mag had another 5-10 years to go.
Nice aged California cab. Color dark garnet slightly turbid (cleared after 2 hours of decanting). Lots of dark fruit interlaced with very slight cedar/oak. Tannins integrated. Very long finish. Glad we won half dozen bottles at an auction - great QPR
