A generous portion of snappy dark fruit coated in a soft glove of vanilla and spice box. Very primary at the moment. Tannins have softened. Can easily enjoy now and should bring pleasure past 2025, potentially benefitting from some additional age, allowing some secondary characteristics to come into play.

Superb. A well balanced mouthfeel with firm tannins supports an explosive pallet of deep bramble, cocoa, dusty forest floor, and light spices. A quintessential example of California Cabernet. Definitely partake if the opportunity arises.

Beautifully developing wine. Still slightly acidic and firm tannins. Fruit and oak well integrated but needs a few more years to reach perfection.

Rich, syrupy goodness that's drinking noticeably younger than the 2011.
