Sometimes, I think this doesn't get enough credit as it is somehow considered a second wine to the vineyard designate Cabs from Bevan.  It is expensive but it's only half the price of those.  And it might just be hair off. Sometimes.  From some of them.  Maybe.  This was outstanding.  At age six, it is drinking young but very well.  Purple in color, opaque and bright.  The nose has cassis, dark chocolate, slight graphite, slight blueberries and spice.  On the palate, this has firm tannins.  Lots of cassis and black cherry fruit over spices and slight chocolate.  Long finish.  Delicious.  Deep.  This needs another seven to ten to get closer to peak and then should mature for twenty after that.  It drinks great on its own and will work well with roasts.  As it ages, it will become more food versatile.
