Still drinking nicely. Lot's of tobacco, earth, and leather tones with good fruit and very integrated tannins.

Very weak on the palette until fully opened up, which took about 2 -3 hours. Then gentle and delicate, best drunk on its own.

Easy (too easy) I would put this in a class of standard quaffing wines. Not much on the palette or finish. Would not pay the premium again for this wine. Better off with buying more bottles of 2006/2007 BV Tapesty or Hall 2008 for half the price. At least the bottle of wine wasn't corked. Save your money and put it elsewhere. Regards, Tony.

Wine Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon is perhaps the world's best known red variety, with its full-bodied, intense profile. An offspring of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, it is the primary grape of Bordeaux's Left Bank (Medoc and Graves regions) and the Napa Valley, but can be found growing all over the world. Typical descriptors for Cabernet Sauvignon are cassis, cedar, mint, black pepper, eucalyptus, and pencil lead.
