A very herbal, red-fruit-infused Cabernet, from, as the name says, just one clone: Clone 30. This blockbuster California Cab has leather, tobacco and dusty dark-chocolate-layered tannins, that still somehow taste softened and are accompanied by a note of black licorice. Cellar it for 10–12 years and the fruit should get along even better with the tannins.
