This is their non-designated base Cab. A truly excellent bottle in its own right. Purple in color, opaque and inky. The nose has cassis, slight coffee, slight leather, and spice. Full bodied. Medium tannins. On the palate, this is delicious. Not an over powering wine, but plenty of fruit and backbone. Notes of cassis, char, slight coffee grounds and spice. Clean. Nice balance. Long finish. This is obviously young, but very enjoyable. it should drink well for the next fifteen to twenty years. Great on its own, this will work well with all but the lightest dishes. It should work well with pork or lamb chops.
