Prior vintages are excellent. This just breaks average. Good texture. Medium body and weight. Underripe tannins complimented by bright acidity. Should further improve with time.

One of the first bottles that got me into wine. Never fails.

Medium crimson with light ruby undertones and a cherry red rim. Wonderfully aromatic nose of leather, tons of roasted oak, and tobacco. This is still a bit young to open but you won’t regret it too much. About as Oakville as you can get, it’s full bodied with a terrific combination of finesse and sheer power. Still a bit tight, this needs a good bit of time before she really opens up and reveals herself. Reminiscent of a nice Left Bank, the palate shows chocolate mousse, vanilla, mild oak, and blackberries. Quite the nice complex palate that just keeps evolving over time. Long finish with spice and cocoa. If you want a true Oakville Cab, this is it folks.

Oak and black fruit. Subtle vegetal notes. Mild tannins. Heavy mouthfeel.
