CVed 10/28/16. Still a nice Ruby color despite the age. Nose has some Sherry aroma that blew away. Then it's a nice mix of Forest floor and leaves and black berries. On palate it is a balance of earthiness and mature fruits and leather and hints of tobacco and very long elegant and complex finish. A bit of dryness on the body. Very nice mature cab! Z Auction. Opened 6/11/17. The oxidative Sherry note more prominent than I remembered. Otherwise drinking nicely but did not go well with grilled steak pieces that turned out to be somewhat spicy.
