This is their regular (not single vineyard) Cabernet.  The better barrels typically go to the single vineyard releases, but the blends seem to have more complexity (if less depth) but cost less.  This is an excellent wine.  Purple in color, ruby at the rim, opaque and bright.  The nose is great.  Cassis, slight blueberries, black licorice, spice and slight leather. There is a juicy texture. Full bodied.  Cassis and black licorice along with a bit spice. Moderate tannins but they are silky. Good balance. Nice finish.  Not yet at peak but delicious now.  This will drink well for the next twelve to fifteen years.  Great on its own, like many young cabs, this will work better with hunk of protein and fat.  A nice filet would be great.
