This is the basic Cab from this winery. It is still expensive ($70 on release) but it is an outstanding wine. Purple in color, opaque and bright. The nose has cassis, cedar, graphite and slight chocolate. Full bodied with medium tannins. On the palate, cassis, licorice with underlying char/graphite. Lovely texture. Long finish. This is still young but drinks great on its own. It should continue to develop for another five years and be good for another ten after that. A nice drink on its own and will work great with a steak or burger off the grill.
