Solid wine. Even at age 9, it’s rich, ripe, big, fresh, and long. Reminds me a whole lot of a very classy and well made California Cab. That said, it lacks a little typicity for me. If I drank it blind, I’d probably like it a touch better because I don’t have any expectation. Very good and can cellar for at least 5 more years before beginning to decline.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
