    Tried with James Suckling Jan 2011. Amongst top 2 (of 8) we tried that night with Kapcsandy. Ripe, balanced fruit (raisins/sultanas), medium acidit, long finish. More complex and yet clean/balanced than other Cabs we tried that night

Its precise focus and its wholly impeccable balance place it at the forefront of the pack, and it never once hints at heaviness or heat. While fairly tannic, it is not in the least tough, and its essential juiciness perseveres to the end.
