A Pretty Paso Almost-Teenager

Clear and bricking with some sediment.  Big oaky nose, somewhat briary but clean and well-rounded, showing considerable polish.  Doesn’t really smell like a 10yo cab–enough vibrant fruit to give one the impression of something half that age.  Gobs of the expectant dark-cherry Paso fruit but with just enough acid still to pull it off in a quite balanced package, somewhat simply-layered with spice and floral-notes.  Drinking absolutely at it’s prime, and with a certain amount of air definitely heads a porty-direction.  Supple and clean–nothing off-putting or awkward and all-in-all an elegant offering.  14-1 and, if you can find it or have it, a solidly recommended  ♦
