Starting to get long in the tooth and flat. Will move remaining two up in rotation. Yet, a food friendly wine with a light finish.

A big Napa Cab. I opened it 2 hours before dinner and it required a decant. The last taste of the wine was the best.

I would agree that it requires a 30 minute decant. Strong berry nose and hints of chocolate on mid palette.

The wine was the base for poached salmon and the dinner wine. It provided the minerality for the sauce as well as a pleasant midsummer dinner wine.
