Opened this up for a group of friends (along with a few other CA cabs etc).
What a classy wine. This is bordeaux like in its balance and stance. Brambly fruit now, receeding somewhat to give way to more tobacco, earthy, loamy, nice medium denisty and balance. Solid, still some tannins for life but I would drink now as it is showing rather well. Oak has been integrated so not as sharp as it was in its youth.
