This was actually pretty good. I was very nervous when it was opened. It didn't look too good. Signs of seepage and the cork was rather moist. Poured it into a glass without decanting. Brownish tinge but not too bad, sort of hazy - not clear. Nose was very nice of soft fruits and it tasted very round and soft. It is so interesting to see that it was 12% alc. and drinking beautifully. Definitely worth the $25 I spent to get it from WineBid.

(Souverain Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley) Group's #8 (my #6) – 61 pts; 1, 1, 0, 5 – stewed plum, barnyard, cherry and a little tar on nose (barnyard blows off over time, yielding to a touch of rhubarb); tart plum, red fruit, leather and iodine palate; medium dried cherry finish
