The Pick of the litter of wines I am showing off this week...an affordable Bordeaux-based blend with some clear California notes. Twenty-two months oak, 55% new but by no means "oaky"...Tends towards the darker fruits, a pleasure to drink and I suspect it will be for some time to come...

I am reflexively prejudiced against California Cabs that aren't from Napa or Sonoma, especially those from anywhere south of Santa Cruz, cbut this is pretty good. Better than the last bottle I had. Nose has rich cassis and dark blackberry, and lots of graphite and dark minerals. Dark and tannic on the palate, but this seems like it just needs a few more years to round into shape.
