The bird juice continues to impress- this would easily fool any of my acquaintances who believe Cali Cabs are the end all/ be all - in fact this comes across as elegant and restrained by comparison to a big Caymus or Dominus. Lush blueberry cocoa flavors emerge from the dark purple colored liquid with medium legs. Flavors of jammy black fruits with cumin/turmeric spices underlying. Certainly an oak component to this and it's just impeccably smooth. Tannins are in the process of softening but it's just constantly hedonistic! Full bodied, makes you wonder when the meat will be ready! Lovely, 3 more to go of this vintage, and then 2011s and 2012s!! May be the best QPR ever.
