Delicious. Dark and ripe with great structure still. Everything is fresh and delightful. Great with a New York steak. This shows how good Carmel valley can be. It is Bordeaux like but with obvious California pedigree and excellent winemaking. This should go easily 5 more years and still be at its peak. Decant for sediment

Drinking really really well. Drinks like a 15 yr old bordeaux. Supple tannins, a touch of earth on the nose with still-beautiful fruit. Way to go carmel valley!
