    Color: Dark garnet

    Nose: Bright red fruit initially on the nose, so fresh! Then black fruit comes in on the bottom with those dusty Rutherford tannins just beginning to assert themseelves at this young age. Some spice and hint of good oak.

    Palate: Extremely good. A elegantly powerful Cab, another winner from Jon Priest's and Tony Soter's team. Med to full-bodied, has nicely integrated parts that did well in an off-vintage. Good acidity and various depths of fruit that touch the blue spectrum, as well, and oak that adds itself, but does not dominate. Tannins are round and nicely integrated already and showing their appellation. Great.

    Color: Dark garnet and violet in tone, with just a hunt of ruby on the edges.

    Nose: Very good here, fantastic actually. Deep red and black fruit of plum, blackberry, and black cherry liqueur. Black currants, anise and flint also abound.

    Palate: Also fantastic, the dusty tannin is fully integrated into this full-bodied wine, balanced by good acidity. Deep depths of that same black and red fruit is also here on the palate, with red and black plum in the fore. Red and black currant, flint, stone, and big anise follow out into the long finish. Awesome and still coming off very young: AwesomeWK.
