Very tight. After an hour showing some fruit but not yet open. Just a baby. Nice. Better after 5yrs.

Nice big, bold, dark cab. Good fruit with lighter than expected, but nice, finish.

Steakhouse wine list. Oak was nauseatingly over done or just out of balance still. This is a fetus basically.

This is a nice wine but not my favorite in this category or price range. It's a bit thin with a short ish finish. Tasted better with the bone in ribeye vs stand alone but would have preferred something bigger. One hour decant.
