Unfortunately I think my friend here was corked. My initial concerns about the state of the cork itself were temporarily dispelled because the nose revealed (what seemed to be) an in-tact wine. However, on the palate there were strong notes of chemicals and Clorox. Bummer.

Fruit forward, smooth cab with blackberry, leather, tobacco and spice. Certainly, age worthy and is drinking well now, but will be better in 5 years. The 2012 and 2013 vintages are better (esp the latter) but this 2008 is solid. Recommended!

Best vintage of this wine ever. Perfect balance of tannins and fruit with the expected cassis, tobacco, and leather.
Buy and hold!! Highly recommended!

Had this after dinner in Tuscaloosa, brilliant wine. Rich, complex dark fruits, cedar, and clove actually.
