How much did I pay for this again? I don't know how I'm going to avoid drinking this in its youth because it is so delicious and approachable, but this should age nicely. Glad I rolled the dice and bought a case.
Classic Chad Conundrum

Do I drink the wine in its youth, hoping that Chad can find another Spring Mountain deal, or do I hoard it, knowing that I rarely spend more than $40 for a cab and figuring that this will drink like a $70 cab for 8-12 years? Anyway, the wine is wonderful in its youth. Easily approachable with minimal decanting, currant aroma and black fruit taste. My guess is that the wine will improve for 5-6 years and drink well for another 5-6 years. I hope that I'm patient enough to have a couple of bottles left in 2020.

Moving slightly south, Cabernet Sauvignon meets Merlot in roughly equal proportions in the red wines of Graves. In both of these Bordeaux regions, the top bottles...
