Awesome dark berries with nice minerality. Howell mountain fruit at its best. Finish lasts forever. Decant and enjoy. No need to stash this away. She shows beautifully with air

Face off of the 2010 Cabernets with FirstLight Steak tenderloin. Dancing Bear comes out the winner with a touch more fruit and depth to it over the Quilceda Creek. Both wines decanted 90 mins. Smooth yet complex.

It was drinking really good well, but needed about 1.5 hours in the decanter.
