Had to re-visit after tracking down a few more bottles this weekend. It is STILL one of the most fabuliscious cabs I have had in ages. Deep deep purple ruby with staining edges.
Overwhelming mint and briar–but supple nose and it massages your tongue with velvet and the finest silk and feathers and immediately commences searing it with acid and tannins. But so balanced. This is Alex Valley Cab at it’s FINEST. I’m blown away. Just an INFANT.
