Awesome, with time a diced jalapeno/serrano chile character came through and dominated with a toffee chocolate like note. Amazing black fruit and dusty soil like earth. One to age a bit longer but amazing now.

Deep mix of garnet and ruby red. Layered nose with a slightly woody attack and red cherries. Undertones coated in damp leaves, gravel and even some softer dark fruits like plums. Moderate plus tannins (7.5/10) and balanced. Great acidity with a silky texture. Layered with tons of red mountain berries, dark gravel and a touch perfumey. Big full bodied wine with a lingering finish. Drink till 2036.

Always a great cab, but generally after a 15-20 year lay down. This tasting was still tight, but fruit came through.
