Grown on chalky, decomposed soil. Redolent with dark fruit. Brooding with tons of structure. Blackberry compote, savory herbs, mahogany. This is one to cellar. A lovely beast.

According to my dining and drinking companions, "Full-bodied, meaty, and smooth", " Everything you'd want in a Cab Sauv", "Reminds you of everything delicious", "I was in 5th grade in 2005". Hear, hear! 🍷

This one I felt was missing something. I expect something with this label to dominate and compared to what else was there tonight, it was just rather timid. Still had some rather nice black fruits on the nose and on the palate, but thankfully this one wasn't mine. A little flat in the middle. Nice blackberry nose and palate. The finish is a little on the stiff side. I just think this one needs another 2-3 years in the bottle for it to wake back up again. I think it was in a funky place. Very enjoyable and I would definitely not snub this one if it was the only one on the table (quite the opposite, actually). This one tasted with a 2012 Pott Franc, a 2014 Bevan Ontogeny, a 1997 Lokoya Diamond Mtn, and a Barnett 2010 Rattlesnake Hill Cab. Nice wine.....I just think it would be better on another day.
