Big, meaty style. Powerful. Good earthy notes. Very sweet fruit, blackcurrant, vanilla, with a grippy finish. Will be interesting to see where this goes

2012 vintage, lots of dark fruit and terroir, drinking really well but should only get better with some age

Big, aromatic Cab with well concentrated dark red fruit. Smooth, velvety, and fruity with silky tannin on the finish and a dose of alcohol.

A very lovely wine. Deep purple color. Bright and full-bodied with lots of cranberries, blueberries, and currants and a hint of vanilla and milk chocolate.

Been saving this for a while and it was worth the wait. Have another bottle stashed another time.
