Dark Ruby with aromas of ripe berry fruits, herbs and earthy spice. On the palate flavors of black cherry, raspberry and black currant with espresso, cacao and earthy spice notes. Well balanced, lively acidity, fine dusty tannins long ending with fruit and tobacco spice! Nice!

Tasting of nine 1996 Cabernets, Merlots and Bordeaux blends from California, Bordeaux and Australia. This split the group because of the hint of (in my opinion, “good”) bret.

Cherry, currant, maple, smoke, loamy earth and oak. Great structure and soft tannins.

Still quite tannic, fruit very much alive but showing secondary aromas and more wild green side of cab sauv. Vanilla and caramel on finish. Poured from coravin but suspect this would benefit from some air. Quite nice.
