I picked up a few of these for $110 a bottle, wanted to check in on the current state. I have had a few 16’s that are very opulent and approachable, not the case with this. Needs 8-10 years-course tannins with minimum fruit profile and high acid.

Had to try one of these. Obviously young and will need another 5-10 years to hit its stride. But drinking very enjoyably now. Perfectly ripe red fruit with hints of blue and black. Tannins and acidity still strong. Best to aerate for a couple hours. But wow what a long finish.

Less than I was led to believe it was. Solid but not special. A bit overly sweet and not very nuanced. Narrow profile. Needs more time perhaps.

Had to try one. Leave alone for a long while. Will go from awesome to amazing.

A young vibrant Cabernet that will do nothing but improve. I have a case and will Cellar for 5 years before I try again 🍷
