Excellent tiny production Cabernet from Paso Robles. It took a few minutes for the herbal, greenish edge of this wine to blow off, but then it opened up nicely to reveal deep flavors of black currant, blackberry, coffee, roasted vegetables, smoke, and dried herbs. Nicely balanced and long, and seemingly still in its early stages of development. One of the best Smith & Hook wines I've tasted. - HK 2014-04-26
