Double decant and pour (decent chunky/fine sediment). A magnificent dark ruby red color with some bricking. On the nose: a soft but beautiful nose of dark berries, eucalyptus, spice, burnt carmel, and that aged cab perfume. Taste: KABOOM! rich, smooth, velvety well balanced full body wine with black cherry, herbs, currants, wet stones, dark chocolate with a spicy Toffee long finish! YUM! Drinking great now with at least another 5 years to go.

Smell is muted. Some fruit but definitely insignificant.
Taste is full mouth, bold, good dark round fruits Quite smooth. The finish is a little minerally. 9.3.

Initial obvious tannins moved to velvet chocolate. Transitioned into creme de mures with leather on the nose.

Delicious, full bodied cab with a smooth, sophisticated finish given by my good friend for my birthday.
