From a screwcap bottle and auction win. Very good dark fruits with depth.

A beautiful example of a steak Cabernet but delicious enough to drink on it's own once it opens up fully! Great fruit with just enough dryness. This is a special wine for me as I'm drinking this in honor of Casey and his beautiful boy, Cade!

Dark ruby, almost purple in colour, lots of fine sediment. The wine offered a complex nose of elder, black currant, cherry, blackberry, chocolate, spices, clove, liquorice, some leather, some tobacco and a charred wood component. On the ripe palate the wine showed elder, black currant, cherry, some blackberry, coffee, chocolate, spices, cinnamon, liquorice and some tobacco, paired with lively medium-plus acidity, medium-plus tannin, notable heat from the alcohol (15.2% ABV) and very good length. The full-bodied wine had good complexity, with well-handled oak, but the alcohol was out of balanced. Inferior to the tight, dense, concentrated, powerful 2007. 91
