Pulled this wine from the cellar after eight years. This wine represents the best Cabernet Sauvignon grapes in the Livermore, California vineyards that Steven Kent Mirassou can assemble. It is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and always a phenomenal wine. Pulled this out of the cellar last night wanting a special treat. On the eyes the purple hue beamed royalty and uniqueness with its coloring being crisp with clarity. It possessed a medium viscosity. On the nose, red fruit filled the olfactory senses coupled with medium oak tones. On the palate, this wine shined with hints of cocoa & expresso and provided a rich and dense fluid of cherries, vanilla and soft pipe tobacco. The tannins and structure were still strong enough after almost 10 years to provide an elegant and velvety feel, yet structured with a long lasting finish. This wine provided both mouth filling satisfaction as well as an opulent Cabernet Sauvignon.
