2014 Spottswoode Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Napa Valley

Decanted for 2 hours prior to service. Expressive dark chocolate and cherry nose. Gorgeous, lush fruit but structured precisely. Black cherries, anise, leather, hint of tobacco. Sweet tannins yet with a bit of bite still. Beautiful acidity, fabulous balance. Finishes long and subtle with red fruits and a hint of pepper. Just gorgeous. Smooth and elegant. Will improve. Drink over the next 10 years, possibly longer. "A+" with an upside (really).
