Mildly frustrating in that the fruit has dropped off before the tannins are close to resolution. Still, a good risk at $30.

2nd time with this wine, but this time had with two others. Almost went to a 8.9.

Thanks to Southern Wine & Spirits for unloading all their good stuff at absurdly low prices. $30 for this - seriously!?!? Beautiful. Not all that different from the '07 Bancroft Cab from last weekend. You could have told me this was a cab and I wouldn't have questioned it. No decline here. Great fruit. Elegant, but not light. A little floral. Mellow tannins. Brighter than the cab. Wow. $30! That's silly. Bought 6, but should have stuffed the trunk with more.

2006 ... Wow, medium body, easily mistaken by a Cabernet. Great black berries tone, aged just right. Silky finish, drinks very well.

Mineral, chocolate, wood shavings on nose, med-finish. Very low acid made taste a bit flat.
