Amazingly soft and velvety in the mouth, yet there's a solid grip of acidity and tannins that balance the richness. The flavors are extraordinary, ranging from blackberry and cherry-pie filling through currant liqueur and milk chocolate to leather.
Paired perfectly with Bouchon's Strip Steak. The fatty beef matched the taste of the wine perfectly
had at Black's in Bethesda. was excellent. needs more time in cellar but good now
very drinkable. good with or without food. excellent paired with marbled beef.
Beautiful Cabernet, rich and smooth, what it should be
Big but controlled cab.
III Forks 3-7-11 good!
