According to WA, its a blend of: 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot, and Cabernet Franc. This was a big heavy wine mouth feel, loaded with blackberry and blueberry flavors. It still had tons of fruit left, but not much tannins. Its probably got at least a few more years of life left, until the fruit begins to dry out. It went great with a both a cheeseburger and a strip steak.
Opened 2 days ago. Deep ruby/brick at the core. Aromas of faint tire rubber, deep black fruits, vanilla, and wet rocks. Palate shows a full bodied wine, tannins are still present and seem a bit astringent, and the acidity is med. There is some heat noted on the palate from the 14.9% alcohol. The flavors are echoed from the palate, turning into tart black fruit notes, with a glycerin-laden finish that is med in length. This is a nice Calif Cab, a bit too manipulated for my taste, but a nicely made wine overall. Drinking really well right now, and will likely last through 2022.
