Slightly dusty with mint and dark blue fruit. A little truncated but very nice.

Still very much alive in 2015. The nose exhibits an array of dark fruits with accents of barrel, scorched oak leaves and rich soil. The palate is medium side of full with great acidity framing the dark fruits and toffee tones. Decant this and turn off all electronic devices. This deserves your undivided attention.

The last glass was the best! High toned black currant, dark chocolate and almost Tuscan acidity... This bottle lived up to expectation and was a great partner for a giant bone-in rib-eye at Quattro!

Lovely older Cal Cabernet, still has some tannic structure, but mature fruit underneath makes it nicely drinkable with a good steak!!
