What can be said by someone little like me about a wine like this? Is it perfect? 100 points. Is it a perfect wine? What is a perfect wine? Does the brambly nose of rich Luxardo and edgy mint make it perfect? Does the mouthfeel of ridiculously ripe berry and harsh tannins make it perfect? Does the glass-staining concentration and heavy sediment make it perfect? Does the fact it feels young despite the 10-year age make it perfect? Does the fat jammy alleged 14-5 make it perfect? What is perfect? These are not questions I need answered. It’s a beautiful cab. A stunning cab. But perfect? These are the questions everyone needs answered. Big props to @dustynaborwines for sharing and to @bellslosalamos for hosting. And now I leave you with the real questions. What is the perfect wine?
