Very nice, rich, classified-growth-quality nose of deep cassis, cedar, and charred wood. Good finish, too. In the mouth, though, a tad tart and clipped and a letdown compared to the nose. Maybe needs some time to fill out? Still a good buy when you look at the prices of California Cabs or classified growths. - HK 2012-05-30
