A pretty fantastic red wine. Juicy while not sweet, benefits from decanting. Not to be too chilled before serving, notes get lost in the cold. Dry, long finish, medium bodied, fantastic. Got it on sale for $23 and would gladly pay $30+ — a year ago
Something about this cab is just fine, not great. Has a warm, wormwood-like entry and then decent complexity. Herbal, not overly so, and dry but not overly so. After two hours decanted, more spice and tobacco notes rise to the top, and a delayed finish. I like that it's not overly fruit forward but it's almost as if there's something missing from the recipe.
Solid, enjoyable, not incredible. — a year ago
