"The 2011 vintage offers bright and dynamic aromas of raspberries and red cherries that are superimposed with cardamom, nutmeg, caramel and honeysuckle. Rich milk chocolate, pomegranate and framboise are layered onto fine-grained tannins. An interplay of burnt sugar and rhubarb integrate seamlessly into the well-structured toasted oak. 98% Cabernet Sauvignon; 2% Petit Verdot" -Winery

This juice has real potential, but it has a creaky stairway that comes from the vintage. Nice oak profile, however, It’s stemy, and the tannins are underripe. But if you peer beyond those characteristics, I see something special. I want to look at the 12 or 13 vintages.

Just popped. $95 dean and deluca purchase. Letting it decant before I jump in on the worst vintage ever but was assured it was amazing.
