2006 Saddleback Cabernet Sauvignon "Nils" Special Barrel Selection 25th Anniversary

Dark red color. Plums, cherries tobacco, leather aromas. Plush fruit, cherries, bitter-sweet chocolate, anise, blackberry, tannins still need time but not off-putting. Beautiful acidity, fine balance. Finishes moderately long and graceful with dark fruits. Brightens and more red-fruited with air. Needs 4 to 5 more years and should drink well for next 12 years. This was PNP but I'd really recommend a long decant. "A"
