Surpringly soft, perhaps bottle had been open a while. Dark core, with delicate mid palate. sweet oak still very prevalent in youth.

Dark cherries, jammy, smoke. Mild acidity and good tannins for a smooth cab. 2014 vintage

The epitome of a head scratcher. I was given this as a gift about a year ago and had forgotten about it. The nose alone gave me promise on this. Dark, mineral driven, graphite, mocha. It showed decent resemblance of a Stag’s Leap district wine. However, the palate was just...? Hard to describe. Bit of coconut, ripe berries, plums, licorice. Not over-oaked, but the oak itself seemed out of place, if that makes sense. I actually didn’t get much improvement out of this even after 2-hrs in the decanter.
