Dense black cherry/black raspberry jam, dark chocolate, tobacco, and chewy tannins. Very expressive and explosive in structure and intensity. Will be long lived. Needs lots of time to unfurl its bounty of pent up flavor

Surprisingly big, ripe nose. Quite a boisterous palate for a traditional producer, with big ripe dark fruit. Wide open and hedonistic, if a touch unfocused, this is a big, fun glass of unabashed CA Cabernet...

Opulent and a bit salty. There was definitely a character shift in the early 2000s. It doesn't taste like it used to.

Delicious, tight, vibrant cab. Lots of cedar and acidity, along with red and black cherry fruit. Drinking well now, this was most enjoyable but not profound...

Fine wine, baby! The softer side of full bodied, beautiful restraint and wonderful acidity. This is the Goldilocks of Cabernet Sauvignon from 2011. Not too big, not too herbaceous, not too tight nor too soft. What a treat.
