This has a very subtle and restrained nose with excellent focus to the deep, rust and olive tinged black fruits with a touch of residual wood sweetness adding a coffee creme note with airing. This is just so smooth and rich with bold red currant and raspberry fruit, great length here and an underlay of mineral and spice notes that make a very impressive package. A bit more subtle and restrained than many Cali Cabs but so precise. Fantastic wine 94pts
