First opens with a lot of dark berries with spice on the back. Dense fruity nose. Medium body with boysenberry, cranberry flavors. High acidity covers mild tannins that become present as it opens. After 2h shows some chocolate. Classic Oakville Cab at its best.

Chocolate, toffee, certainly more tight than others but drinks well for the vintage

Smooth as can be, green pepper, 2011 seems to be more of a Bordeaux style than others

I think the wine has lost some of its body and texture. It was more like a Pinot noir than an Oakville cab. It was very easy to drink.

Smooth start with dark fruity flavor blends on the palette and nice smooth finish.
