Thanks Dad, very nice to try.
Color: Opaque Dark Red
Nose: Lots of leather, smokey, earthiness
Palate/finish: very very strong tannins, full body, very very young
Opinion: this needs time and allot of it, ton of potential

Plenty of floral and fruity notes, a really nice 2012. Although smooth with a medium body and low acidity. Very nice. Very round.

Sonoma bringing it. For some reason the word plush comes to mind when drinking this wine.

This is unapologetically a big California cab, and it is not about restraint. Dark fruit, substantial tannins, finishing with chocolate and a hint of minerals. It happened to be just what I was hoping for tonight! Great with home made Chicago style pizza!
