(2011 Vintage) Blackberry, black pepper, and plum flavors enveloped in sweet oak. Round and fleshy middle palate, with nice concentration and good structure. Finishes with silky tannins and a hint of spice.
Nice cab. Good nose and sufficient tannins to age. decanted several hours.
Wonderfully dry full bodied - I really like it - 2nd time as well
Drinks like a $40 instead of $20, silky, smooth, fruit forward.
V accessible for a cab with nice balance.
Truly what you expect of a cab
Nice - a bit peppery.
