Broke this out last night craving some aged Cabernet Sauvignon. Purple to ruby color. On the nose, youthful, medium+ intensity, black cherry and plum fruit, with some fig, spice box, black licorice, moderate oak, and no earth to speak to. On the palate, dry, medium+ body, medium tannin, medium acidity, layered spices, explosive fruit, and good herb component, that carried through a good finish. Still lots of life left in this wine.
