A year-in, year-out deal in California Cabernets, where very few bargains are to be found. Nice varietal nose, though still a bit tight, especially when first opened. Nice dark currant and violet aromas and flavors, good purity and balance. Slightly harsh finish will almost certainly soften with another year or two of age. - HK 2008-09-01
