dark purple; blackberry jam, black licorice, lots of new oak; full bodied, very jammy/syrupy, cloyingly sweet fruit; do not think it will benefit from anymore time in the bottle

5th Coravin pour since 7/25/15, still great, starting to mature. Deep ruby red with compkex aromas of black fruit, herbs and vanilla spice. The wine opened with fresh sweet ripe dark fruit, blackberry and black cherry, with oak, leather and cacao. Well balanced, tannins continuing to develop nicely, slightly savory, finishing with sweet oak notes. My notes from my five pours using Coravin were very consistent, but now noticing the wine maturing. It really
works! Works! Check back in 6months, 1/3 bottle left.

Very young. Fruit forward. Silky on the tongue. Almost "thick" in mouth feel. By far not my favorite Cab.

Porty, juggy, manipulated, hot... No cab or Napa flavors to be had. Not like the good old days that made their reputation.
