This unyielding, structured wine unwinds itself gracefully on the tongue with the measured pace of a grandfather clock. While tightly bound upon release, this vintage gratifies the collector with its restrained development and continued evolution.
Bottled April 2011.
Aged 19 months in 88% new French oak.
This steakhouse-worthy Cabernet is at home by the grill, ably complementing the thickest of steaks with refinement and power; pair this vintage with aged ribeyes or Kobe beef, and observe how it winds itself in the glass over the course of the meal.
