Restrained aromas and flavor but great texture. Probably needs some decanting to pie up the wine but always a classic Cali Cab. Fresh dark fruit tones on the nose with light toast. Tannins are grippier showing the cooler climate.

Focus on brambly fruit. Hint of earthiness. Integrated tannin. Good. Would be interested to see where this goes with a few years.

Loved it. American oak wasn’t overpowering but added a very inviting element. Great start to finish.

Blackberry and old forest in the nose, blackberry, wood and clove in the palate. Needs cheese or beef. Even after 11 years it is still highly tannic

Fantastic! Opened up nice in the decanter. Dark fruits, dry, good tannins. Very nice.
