Definitely a TRB wine - tonnes of fruit packed into a little bottle, but not showing a fruitbomb ripeness. Incredibly intense and concentrated - to be expected of that favored Calistoga fruit of his, reminding me a bit of Wallis Family Seraphim smacking you in the teeth with gritty tannin. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, with fresh aromas of blackberry and black plum, a bit of crushed rock, and bell pepper. The pallet is gritty and tight, exhibiting flavors of red apple skin, black currant, mocha, and an extreme grip to the finish. This wine either needs SEVERAL hours open to breath, or it needs 2 or 3 more years to relax before opening again.. excellent wine, but young.

I’m a little tardy posting Fathers Day wines. We enjoyed all of these.

Good stuff. TRB

Really well made Cab with mosey fruit and chocolate, well balanced and a subtle oak. Great with a perfectly cooked sliced filet.
