Hearty and complex, this beautifully intense yet balanced Cab is begging for some time in the cellar. Strong aromas of cassis, forrest berries, licorice, clove and bittersweet chocolate flood the nose, while flavors of black plum, leather hide, roasted cocoa nibs and cigar box spice unfold in the lush mouth and transition through to the long finish. With everything so proportionately big and powerful, give this until 2014–2018.
