Oak is too dominant for an otherwise nice wine for the price.

Deep.violet with translucent scarlet rim. Medium nose of licorice, blackberry, black plum, black cherry, strawberry, raspberry, cedar, vanilla, clove and tobacco. Medium tart acid of medium body brings black fruits, bitter chocolate, earth and black pepper to the palate. Good structure but balance shifts toward medium edgy, slightly bitter tannins that lead to a long dry earth/oak finish. Decant 1 hour for rich dish/ red meat dishes. Good wine but somewhat dear for $32.99 USD for this quality.

This beauty has held up well. Rich full tannins, earthy, lush. A great bottle of wine. Well done Nick Goldschmidt.

Wow. I guess the secret to California Cab for me is top notch sites with ample bottle age. Aromas of oak and graphite. Super plush on the palate, juicy plum and sweet oak tannins that's not oaky, per se. Yummy licorice on the finish.
