There’s some good, rich cherry and blackberry fruit here, and the wine is fully dry. It’s just a tad acidic now, and green-tea tannins reinforce the roughness. The wine needs food. Cheddar cheese would do wonders to soften and sweeten it.
A little on the country side, this Cab has fine, savory blackberry, cherry, currant and spice flavors, mildly touched by oak. The rusticity comes via the tannins, which have a scouring quality.
