Lovely fleshy notes on the palate with ultra silky yet persistent tannins. A little cold from the cellar. Beautiful texture - easy to love. I can see why Robert Parker gave this 100 points. Not overly Cabernet in a varietal sense but a rich, textured delicious wine still with a latent core giving at least another 5 years. Although I notice Harvey Steiman had a short drinking window through to only 2017. I bought this in the USA years ago when my son was at College - never seen it for sale in Australia.

One hour decant( lots of chunky sediment). A unforgettable dark ruby red. On the nose: subtle notes of plum, currents, floral, crushed rocks, with a little raspberry kicker. Taste: dark cherry, earthy, with a spicy vegi long finish. A soft wine with mouth coating tannins..juicy, plenty of acidity....could drink this all day ( RP 100)!!

It’s Friday!! Opening one of my favs!!! Dark ruby red color—Raspberry plum, sweet currants and floral-perfume on the nose with hints of crushed crocks and forest floor. Dark cherry chocolate and spice are the initial taste. Soft and velvety notes coat the mouth with a long veggie-spice and cedar finish. Plenty of acidity making it a really nice juicy wine that does not disappoint— A fun way to end a week and remember the finer things in life during this almost 3 week stay at home.

2005 vintage. After a two hour decant and a few more hours back in the bottle, this wine started to sing. Great purity of Cabernet of fruit with great structure and finish.
