A true cab! I was impressed with the complexity of the finish. Very dramatic. Lots of fruit, solid tannins and great mouthfeel. If this were music, I'd describe it as having robust highs, mids and lows. It's the Tocatta and Fugue of reasonably priced cabs. Worth your consideration.

Very dark color. Black in the right light. Smells of rotting wood in a good way, with some cherry stuff too. Flavors are cola, cherry Coke, mixed with a berry Talking Rain mineral water. Hint of Panda red licorice. This is a very enjoyable Cab. Balanced, dry and simple. Glad to have it again in another vintage.

Red and maroon color. Smells winey. Maybe a plumy pudding. Deep and dense kinda smell. Tastes a bit like raisins and more of that plum pudding thing. It’s got a hint of acid and lovely bitter bite at the end.

Dark berry fruit, peppery and oak and a hint of vanilla on the way down. A nice finish with balanced tannins. A good cab.
