This 10 year old Cabernet Sauvignon from Washington State is a nice surprise. Doesn't show its age at all, at this point.
Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity.
Dry on the palate and good with food.
After a couple of hours of airtime it shows, red and black fruits with earth, wood, spices, peppercorn, bell pepper, vegetables, herbs, graphite and black coffee.
Nice finish with round tannins and tangy pomegranates.

A little off balance, but has nice structure with a nice mouthfeel.
I've had it before, but at a younger age. Now it feels like a California Merlot, actually. Very interesting to try these kind of wines.
I paired it with a Charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.
Aged in French oak barrels (30% new).

Welll aged -
Clean nose with hints of cacao.
On the palette, Cacao, green pepper, prune, dark,dark chocolate. Bitter yet highly enjoyable, and addictive. Oregon?
I would have thought this SA.
Keep Calm and drink on !

Pop and pour. On the nose: clove, cinnamon, muddled strawberry, blackberries and sugar. On the palate: at first, ok acidity, and not so well-delineated flavors; burnt sugar, then acidity picks up, and the palate is clearer: blackberry and blueberry, clove, and then a wall of finely grained tannin..the finish is a little too staccato, but good energy after the wall of tannin fades a bit, and good length. Still, very tasty! — a month ago

Dig this wine. First I had heard of it. My wine guy gave me a bottle to try. He’s like a heroin dealer. He knows I’ll buy the rest of the case. — 18 days ago
Diesely nose. Malic apple-pear leads to almost coconut and then maybe starfruit? Sweet start, tart finish. Viscous mouthfeel with a fizzy acidity. — 16 days ago
