This really evolved well from it's initial showing of rusty mineral, faded floral and soft black olive tones to a fresh, sweet nose of black currant, cigar box and briary notes with a lovely accent of eucalyptus. In the mouth his remained lean but was wonderfully fresh with a clean, brisk feel and fine focus. Green herb and green tobacco notes help define the zesty red currant fruits. 12.5% alcohol and brilliant! This perfectly exhibits why I prefer these older California Cabernet to Bordeaux, ignoring for the moment the crazy price differential. This is perhaps a bit simple but it remains fresh, brilliantly balanced, and simply a joy to drink. 2009-2015 94pts.
