A fresh nose of red berries, blueberries, mocha and baking spices gives way to a dense, rich palate. The tannins are prominent, but meld well with the ample fruit. This chewy Cab is drinking beautifully now, but would reward 10-15 more years of patience in the cellar. The 14% alcohol isn’t overwhelming, but the wine seems larger than the sum of its parts. Serve with grilled lamb chops, steak frites or beef stew.
