($45) Medium ruby-red. Currant, tobacco and menthol on the nose: classic Oakville cabernet. Then broad, lush and sweet, with very ripe flavors of plum, currant, chocolate and tobacco nicely lifted by minerality. Finishes broad, with huge but ripe tannins and noteworthy length. I find this fresher and less extreme than the Stag's Leap bottling.

Deep, concentrated and bold. Lingering caramel, leather and toasted oak. Subdued tannins showed much better than two years ago. Needed a little time. Very well balanced.

Spicy nose with notes of cooked fruit (plum and cherry). Coats the mouth and has a long finish with strong hints of tobacco and cedar. Definitely decant this one. Could benefit from some more time in the bottle, too (it's a little thin now).
