Dark and whole, the full package with nary a flaw. Very rich and spicy, but with enough plump black fruit to support all that spice, licorice and espresso. It's tight now, almost unyielding, but for fans of masculine Cabs that still feature a sensationally sweet core of fruit, this is terrific stuff.
