Solid Cabernet displaying slightly minty Cabernet fruit in a demure, medium-bodied format. Nice feeling of balance and class, but in something of an inexpressive phase of its development. Had the misfortune of being sampled next to an extremely extroverted Caymus Cab, against which it seemed seriously muted.. I'd give this obviously well-made Cabernet a few more years to blossom. At present I have to say that it's insanely pricey for the pleasure level. (Price estimated.) - HK 2012-05-13
