It's a baby right now, but with some air, is even better on the second day. For some reason, I've been in a Cab mood lately. Maybe it's the direction that Burgundy pricing is heading or it's every new single vineyard, special 'prestige' Pinot Noir that keeps coming out, pushing the pricing envelope because they're 'microscopic'. Let's not forget that wine is a beverage and is meant to invoke a little pleasure in lives that have been inflicted with covefe. What a stunning wine from one of Washington's greats!
