Ehhh, nothing more to add to my previous review. Very consistent to my first bottle. Sad it was consistent with the first bottle because the first bottle so mediocre. LOL

Drank at Rosebud Steakhouse in Chicago, against an '07 Kapscandy State Line Cuvee and an '07 Casanova di Neri brunello, with lots of red meat. The little Caravan helds is own against the other two big boys, nothing short of amazing. It has a floral, perfumy nose that is so inviting, followed by a wallop of napa fruit that clears any closed nasal passages. Fairly big body, but not out of control, not overly acidic or alcoholic, with excellent balance and a fine finish. Forgot to mention a healthy does of oak, but again within reason. The fruit is really big, on the verge of being Caymus-like and candied, but not crossing over the line to syrupy side of things like Caymus can be like. Opened first, and allowed to air over two hours, with side by side comparisons to the other two wines. The Kapscandy was my slight fave, as it had just a bit more nuance and sophistication (and the Cassanova was impressive, but the dirt/barnyard/dryness while nice, interesting, and different, was a touch of a detracting). Taking price into consideration, I would quickly take 4 Caravan over 1 Kapscandy or 2 Cassanova di Neri. Outstanding.
