Purple-red in the glass, medium- to full-bodied, dry and augmented with 7% Malbec and 2% Petit Verdot, this rich Cab carries aromas of eucalyptus, dark chocolate, a sprinkling of pepper, dill and other herbs, with blackberry, plum and black cherry carrying the fruit side of the equation. The tannins are a bit green and grippy, but a decanting (or just leaving it in the bottle another couple of years) will take the edge off. Try it with mushroom risotto, mature cheeses or a sirloin steak. 89.5
