Big & Bold
Big California Cab. Lots of black fruit, lots of tannin. Like most 07 Cabs, it can indeed be enjoyed now, but needs a little more time before it reaches its potential. There is plenty here to portend a very complex, layered more elgant wine, if one has the patience to let the youthful exuberance settle down with some bottle aging.
Smooth & Supple
A nicely matured expression of a classic California cabernet. The tannins have rounded nicely. Pretty on the nose, almost floral. Nice mouthfeel. Black fruit still present, with soft oak and spice in layers. Quite complex. Time to drink this one. It won't get any better.
Beautifully decadent. Liquid gold in the glass, wafts of pineapple, vanilla, and apricot on the nose. Fat, rich mouthfeel, without being sticky or clinging. Wonderfully complex layers of fruit, spice, and caramel. Long, long delicately balanced finish.
