This is a nice regional Cab that amply displays how well this county can ripen the grape, especially in a great vintage. There’s a lovely balance of cherry and blackberry fruit with sweet dried herbs and coffee. The finish picks up dusty tannins.
Drinks rather harsh and jagged, although there’s a core of blackberry fruit that hits midway and lasts through the finish. In fact the fruit saves it, but unless you’re a hardcore Deadhead, you can do better for the dough.
