Wow... forgot that I'd had this before. It's every bit as good as it was in April this year. Very plummy initially; over time the fruity nose mellows out. It's a completely different experience than the cabs we've had; lower key, subtle and more complex. Not much tannin except when I first opened the bottle. Let it breath for an hour and it was much better. I love the patina-ed look of the color; the warm color of nylon stockings from the 40's: not the solid, dense nearly opaque quality and intense dark color of a younger wine.
