This was the winner for the group, my #2. Distinct berry notes. From Sonoma Pinot country but this Vineyard gets a lot of sun and makes a great cab - some even like it more than the Pinots...

Very primary. Loads of cassis, oak spice, vanilla, graham cracker and pipe tobacco. Some resinous herb quality on the nose. High alcohol and heavy oak are on full display.

Briny black olives, leather, whiffs of jalapeno. Black plum and dust. Marvelous. From magnum.

Holding up pretty well, but a little too much bell pepper for me.

Well made Sonoma Cabernet with ripe dark fruits, black currants, a touch of tobacco and spice and a lengthy finish. Drinking well now, but has the stuffing for further improvement.

I believe this is the first time I have an issue with a Dehlinger wine. They are know more for PN but have always made excellent Cabs. This was just all wood and no fruit on nose or taste. It drank smooth with a nice finish but nothing. I did decant about 2 hours before dinner. Hopefully more time in the boatel will help as I have 2 bottles left.
