WOW. This over performed for the price. There must be good quantities of mountain fruit in this bottle. The bouquet alone with knock you out. Glad I have a few more of these. Complex, integrated tannins, and fruit that keeps on going. Don't forget a substantial finish with caramel, cedar, blackberry compote. Delicious.
At Tisa and Gunthers we drank the Hall 08 Cab and the Justin Justification 09 among others. The Hall was very round, great fruit flavors and soft. An excellent drink!! The Justification was also nice, slightly lighter in body, good color and fruit flavors. The Cab Franc base was good but after the Hall it seemed a little thin. If I were to do this again I would have had the Justin first then the Hall. Both are great.
Boo-yah! Huge and concentrated. Color is ruby, deep and intense. Aroma is cassis, ripe dark fruit. Great nose. On the palate this is rich, ripe, creme de cassis and anise. Body is medium +. If you like big cabs (and I do) you must buy this for just over $40 and feel like your drinking a $100 bottle. RP put a 95 on this and I agree.
