Totally sippable but tannins and developing oak say “let me rest another...year! Cab can be finicky. It needs its rest. This guy is rich but a wee bit rough. I would taste in, say, 1 1/2 years it would be a 9.1. On the up-note the Gallo camp sent me the marvelous cab glass I sipped it from and I taste-tested it against my go-to fave glass (the overly pricy but miraculous Zalto burgundy glass) and the glass the Martini/Riedel peeps devised KILLS (tried on another cab too) if you are drinking cab. What dooooo ya know

The oaking is a little heavy for me. Pairing with an umami miso soup softened it considerably. Not my favorite but I would have it again.
