    Would still be good for years to come, but we couldn't wait any longer. So delicious, and so damn smooth.

    (2001 Vintage) "A bold, rich, massive expression of exuberant Cabernet, with layers of concentrated currant, blackberry, spice and wild berry flavors that offer a mix of power and finesse, easing up a bit on the finish, where the tannins are ripe and firm. Best from 2006 through 2012. 2,642 cases made."
