ITEM 8239727 - Removed from a professional wine storage facility; Purchased direct from a distributor
Has a certain silkiness in its tannins that makes it approachable today... Look for the Estate to be a real overachiever in 2014 as well as one of the best - possibly the best - California Cabernet in its price range.
Made in a style that demands patience and cellaring, this is taut, firm, dense and sturdy.
...notes of blueberries, cassis, vanilla bean, and licorice...full-bodied...big mid-palate, good freshness and lots of chalky tannin on the finish.
Fabulously rich and pure black fruit, cassis and blackberry, with fine juicy freshness to balance all that intense, lively fruit. Deep and long but not heavy. Sweet oak spice on the end. Full in the mouth but with the finest of tannins.
