A nice showing for this Cab which is drinking well but may yet improve.  Inky purple in color, opaque and bright.  The nose is dusty with nice cassis fruit and some baking spice.  On the palate, it presents as black cherry candy.  Delicious.  Medium tannins.  Nice finish.  This should drink well for the next ten to twelve years.  A nice wine with chili.
