Deep ruby red with complex aromas of black fruit, herbs and vanilla spice. The wine opened with fresh sweet ripe dark fruit, blackberry and black cherry, with oak, leather and cacao. Well balanced, tannins continuing to develop nicely, slightly savory, finishing with sweet oak notes, aged well, still has room to go. Outstanding!

dark purple; blackberry jam, black licorice, lots of new oak; full bodied, very jammy/syrupy, cloyingly sweet fruit; do not think it will benefit from anymore time in the bottle

Black jammy fruit and new oak, med plus tannins, big booze, but missing the acid to balance it out...

5th Coravin pour since 7/25/15, still great, starting to mature. Deep ruby red with compkex aromas of black fruit, herbs and vanilla spice. The wine opened with fresh sweet ripe dark fruit, blackberry and black cherry, with oak, leather and cacao. Well balanced, tannins continuing to develop nicely, slightly savory, finishing with sweet oak notes. My notes from my five pours using Coravin were very consistent, but now noticing the wine maturing. It really works! Works! Check back in 6months, 1/3 bottle left.

Very young. Fruit forward. Silky on the tongue. Almost "thick" in mouth feel. By far not my favorite Cab.
