still has some really good life to it. Soft vanilla and some leather on the nose with hints of dark cherry and plum on the palette. Still some tannins in play as well. PnP so I can't wait to see how it opens up over the next hour or so (hoping it does). Wish I had more. Last bottle.
Great cab that has aged quite gracefully. Dark plum, spice, black raspberry, high acid but still round. Paired perfectly with with the venison tenderloin and garlic mashed potatoes. Still has a lot of life in it yet, fruit dominated yet.
Currant, plum and blackberry fruit on a medium plus frame with medium minus acidity. I liked that it was not as ripe and forward as many Napa cabs, but it also lacked some depth and roundness from this slightly more lean style. Drinking nicely with about a half hour decant, and wish I could still get this for the $33 I paid.
