90 pts, Stephen Tanzer - Inky ruby. Deeply pitched aromas of cherry, toasty oak, mint and pipe tobacco. Concentrated but lively and fresh, offering gently sweet cherry-vanilla and cassis flavors that are lifted by juicy acidity. Finishes long and sweet, with supple tannins sneaking in on the late side. This fruit-driven cab is accessible now but has the depth to age.
