Still very tight, this Cab needs some time to develop in bottle, its dark fruit and coffee-laced tannins just barely able to come alive and show off their provenance. This is an oft-sourced vineyard in the Livermore Valley, one to look for when it comes to both Chardonnay and Cabernet, as well as other Bordeaux varieties. This wine is 100% Del Arroyo Cab.
