First time trying this wine from one of my favorite California wineries.  Purple in color.  Thin ruby rim.  The nose is awesome; cassis, cedar, graphite and with air and intersting clay note comes out.  Great texture.  Rich yet juicy yet supple yet lush.  On the palate, black cherry fruit and cassis.  A great underlying minerality.  Tight but unwinds in the glass.  Deep and complex.  Almost seamless.  I suspect another year or two and this merits a 100 point score.  Easily has 2 or 3 decades of life in it.  Wow.
