Red and black fruit. Tannins have softened. Long finish.
Shame that the price escalated and chased me away a few years later.

Slightly muted nose. Palate showed mostly red fruit, firm tannins, and a long finish. No green notes at all. Typical excellent Mike Smith wine!

Red and black fruits. Tannins are soft and nonintrusive. Medium to long finish. Drinking very young for a 9 year old cab.

Not as bold as I expected. Fruit was somewhat muted. Possibly a slightly flawed bottle.

Once again, no cab flavors. More like port. Fortunately my last bottle. Disappointing.

Short metallic finish. Very little fruit on the palate. Fortunately that was my last bottle.
