Had 6 of these. This was the last one. The first one was a stinker which led me to give away/trade most of them. This was great. Everything old Cab should be.

Really, yes it's that good. Pitch black in the glass, a blackout. Nose of petroleum, funkiness, Smuckers blackberry jam and peek of olive oil...nice. Mouth coating, slight tart-chewy tannins, bold and long. Despite the powerfulness the when maintains its structure highlighting, vanilla, cherry cola and oak. Finishes clean with pepper and smoked blueberries rounding out a playful wine.

Always reliable blend and even though young it's full, polished and ready to go.

Brilliant. Very much undervalued. I had this once before but wow is it good. Smooth and polished textures - complex and dynamic flavors.

An awesome blend that I’ve always enjoyed. Cool blue & black fruits, tobacco, licorice, dried garden herbs, and sweet Luxardo syrup.

Dark cherry, plum, and green pepper on the nose. Nice wine. Nice and balanced, would still hold this for a year+, still a bit on the young side but good with food.
