2014 Quilceda Creek Cabernet Sauvignon

Decanted for 3.5 hours before service. Deep chocolate and black cherry nose. Vibrant, deep fruit, blackberries, black cherries, anise, semi-sweet chocolate. Firm tannins, perfectly balanced acidity. The wine coats the palate. Finishes long with dark fruits, bright spice and anise notes. A powerful yet elegant wine. With a lengthy decant it is great now, but will improve for another 5 to 7 years and last long past that. "A" with an upside.
