Purchased for $23, not decanted.
Deep red color, almost purple. This has a tremendous nose of sweet cassis with great minerality tending toward herbal but not green. Very young in the mouth this wine has great deep fruit with a little spicyness, a touch of chocolate and black licorice. The finish is terrific and long, but this is still pretty tight.
I love this wine, and would give it 92+pts with aging potential. It is a QPR A and I will buy a case to stick away. This reminds me more of bordeaux than of cali cab (which is why I like it so much). There's none of that sweet syrupy oak that cheap Cali cabs usually throw at you, this one is all class!
Yes, but I came here for an argument.
Oh! Oh! I'm sorry, this is abuse.
