This wine was one we tasted at a benefit wine reception and just absolutely loved, so the next week we picked it up at our wine shop. At $35 it isn't an every day drinker (at least not for me) but it is worth every penny. As I mentioned above we did decant it for about 30 minutes, not that we had to but that is what the tasting notes are based on. A very fruity Cab with lots of complexity, that I feel is very approachable and doesn't need to be paired with food, although it did compliment our pasta that evening very nicely.
