1st release with Morissoli fruit. Really lovely with our NY Sirloin off the BBQ.

A little too tame for me. Perhaps not as good as the '05.

Heavy oak & fruity wine. Deep color & intense aromas of bruised berries, baking spices & ground coffee. Full mouthfeel with thick tannins and a lingering finish.

Simply the best. Forget about the rest. The biggest, baddest Cab you can find. It’s got legs for miles.

Classic, yet unique profile Cab. Why Uber when this Cab is available. Il Castillo es mi amore!
The price is a little tall, but so is the reward.

I hate the waxed cork! What a mess to open this sucker. An expensive wine which I saved to serve to fussy guests. I become more critical of my offerings when I serve knowledgeable guests... sigh.... I liked the wine. It was quite nice, rich with taste of dark cherries. I almost loved it, except for acidic tones being a little out of balance. Still a rather lovely wine. Too expensive for what it is, however.
