Gorgeous depth of blackcurrant, and a dusty minerally note. Lightly minty. Good meaty fullness, dark fruited, quite warming, quite soft on grip and acid, therefore quite forward. Good.

1.5 hour decant(decant chunky/cloudy sediment). A decadent dark purplish garnet color. On the nose: blueberry, cassis, menthol, forest floor, and floral. Taste: A rich, creamy medium plus body wine with mouth coating flavors of red fruit, spice, chocolate, smokey bbq, caramel, and a espresso pencil lead medium plus finish. YUM! really came together since I had a couple years ago.

This is just perfect smooth California Cabernet. Lots of plum and a little tart cherry but very velvety with some flinty graphite at the end.
