Tremendous complexity, depth and richness, with sharply focused layers of currant, anise, cedar, tobacco and spice, firming on the finish, where the tannins are soft enough for the wine to be enjoyed now.
...expansively-flavored, full-bodied Cabernet with a high level of tannin. Its stunning display of highly extracted, blackcurrant fruit judiciously wrapped in toasty oak is impressive.
..Strong in extract & quite dense but very tightly wrapped today. Slight suggestion of nutty herbaceousness. Finishes with substantial chewy tannins, but also very long on the palate. This showed more & more texture with extended aeration..
