Promontory is a wine "designed" to be ready on release while waiting on its big brother Promontory Red Wine to mature.  It is a Cabernet based proprietary blend.  A stunning wine.  Inky purple in color, opaque and bright.  The nose has cassis, chocolate, blueberries, spice and slight char.  Firm tannins.  On the palate, the first sip grabs your palate's attention.  Black raspberries, blueberries, chocolate, and spice.  This sure seems to need more time in the cellar (depending how you like your wine), but it is delicious today.  It should drink well for twenty more years.  Great on its own, this could use food with some fat such as prime rib to counter the tannins.  Very impressive.  Bottle 23DE-A7BA.
