Full red-ruby. Superripe aromas of plum, strawberry, tobacco and loam. Fat, thick, sweet and deep, with the wine huge weight gracefully supported by firm underlying backbone. A superripe, extremely long cabernet of great richness and depth. Built to age but showing spectacularly already.

Extremely glamorous Californian Cab with seductive layers of ripe fruit and no shortage of structure to keep it evolving in bottle. Very correct rather than flabby.

This bottle wan't at the par of past ones...bottle variation? who knows...what I knows it was more dry and low acidity than expected not too mention somehow tannic and monolithic. Hope to have other later this year in order to see or confirm this behavior.

Deep dark rich wine with a beautiful nose of blackberries, cedar and cassis, a great mouthfeel thick and vicious, nicely integrated tannins with a long luxurious finish. Drink now and for another five years.
