Very classy, deep dark nearly black hue with aromas of cigar ash, blackberry pie, baked pie crust, sweet fruit above the rim, a touch of eucalyptus.
Palate--Nice first impression, rich dark berry fruit, tar, supple texture, mouth filling flavors, and a loooong, lingering black tea finish.
This is a very stately structured Cab. with surprising mouth feel, and profile. While being uncomplicated, it is never-the-less interesting and should be even more so as it breaths more. I see it selling on line around $24 but I know I didn't pay near that. This wine has the back bone to stick around for another 8-10 years only improving along the way. So I say--Raise a glass!!!
