This is a very decadent Cab that is drinking very well at this young age. Purple in color, opaque and bright. The nose is very nice with black cherries, cassis, dust, some graphite and hints of earthiness. On the palate, this is soft and accessible. It's a big wine but the tannins are soft and the fruit is ripe. Lots of cassis, blueberries and plums. Underlying spice. Nice finish. Delicious. This drinks great on its own and will work with roasts and grilled foods. It should calm down a bit in five to seven years and be good drinking for the next twenty.
