78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petite Verdot, 10% Merlot, 5% Malbec, 1% Cab Franc. Outstanding blend that is very well balanced and continued to evolve over several hours. Great now and definitely worthy of laying down for 7-10 years.

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.

Normal service has been resumed...
Excellent poise and clarity on the nose. Notes of coffee, cinnamon and overripe cherries.
The palette shows precision and focus, with muscularity. Perfect extraction reveals cassis and blueberries. Tannins are powerful, suggesting that this is one for the ages.

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