First opens with a lot of dark berries with spice on the back. Dense fruity nose. Medium body with boysenberry, cranberry flavors. High acidity covers mild tannins that become present as it opens. After 2h shows some chocolate. Classic Oakville Cab at its best.

2015 far niete. Oakville- dark and rich with a decent amount of fruit. Very easy to drink. I like it a lot. Not very complex. 9.1 $136. Not the bottle in the pic.

Dark, medium-heavy mouthfeel. Complex flavor with earth, oak, cedar, and a hint of creme de cassis. Staying warm in this subzero weather. Happy New Year to my friends on Delectable!

The wine is so balanced and elegant. Wonderful tangy blackberry and black fruit - very focused without being over extracted and heavy. Just a delight!🍷

2010 vintage. On the nose, strong cherry, red berries, currant and anise with oak and vanilla. On the palate, considerably lower tannins than the 2014 I had recently. Silky smooth mouthfeel, but not as rich and textured as expected. Initial hints of oak, vanilla, pepper, cherry, red berry, and Extremely long finish of cherry and vanilla.
