I'm really liking the way this is drinking now. Hanasowner, in a note below, suggests this is not quite as full throttle as his/her ideal "big cab". I think that's why I like it. Nicely balanced, with decent acidity, a touch (not a slam) of oak, and some discreet tannins on the finish. Probably not the backbone to be a long term cellar hold, but should continue to evolve favorably for several years. Drinking well now. Hides it's high alcohol very, very well. Good QPR. 92+ points.
Decanted 3 hours. Somewhat closed vs the others we tasted, it was a bit of a mystery to me. Re-bottled after a total of 5 hours in the decanter and then pumped, the last couple of glasses were good two days later but I couldn't help but feeling that I had missed the best part of the show somewhere in between. Maybe this is a 'hold'?
