Crisp Cabernet nose; crisp, medium-full wine, with a firm but not coarse tannin; fresh, red-fruit ripe, lacks a bit of depth, but good flavor, nice fruit length. Somehow just doesn't sing this year quite as it did in 2011. Yet it is always one of the value stars at ten-year-on tastings! 2020-28.

Slightly smoky reduction from the oak, with notes of strawberry; quite elegant, fresh, medium-bodied, nice tannins.
