Robert Craig always solid. Well rounded cab. And amazingly, we just saw a green flash sunset. Great pairing.

Needed a little time to open up, but once it did, this wine had some wonderful layers. This opened with plum, blueberry, purple flowers and rich soil before changing over to more notes of leather, and subtle pepper and nutmeg. The tannins were still pretty firm but balanced. It was a good match for a filet with blue cheese/black pepper/parsley. It was interesting to keep finding the changes in the wine over a couple hours.

Excellent mouth feel. The texture is smooth full bodied and very lush. This is an elegant vintage.

This is a well structured wine with noticeable blackberries, blueberries, tobacco, coffee and a hefty backbone.

Highly extracted and lots of residue on glasses. Super flavorful and good finish if you managed to keep the dregs away. I'm guessing unfined and unfiltered.
