Loads of bright tobacco with some fruit and berry notes. Holding good color and enough tannin to provide texture that this wine holds the best elements of its youth but the maturity of a 2001.

Very tasty and a benchmark wine to boot. Classic Napa CS/knights valley notes of red cherry, cedar, mocha. Fruit is quite high pitched, fresh and red for an 18 year old CS. Still quite primary. A lso starting to show secondary notes of fresh wood essential oil, black tea and a bit of leather. Great structure with both acidity and tannins still balances and strong. At 14% abv with only 30% new oak. While not yet seeing the complexity I would expect, this really shows off polished and with great potential

Happily surprised this 2001 cab, which sat in storage for well over a decade, still tastes smooth. No vinegar here.
