Really nice, especially at the price

One hour decant: This is full of black cherry, blackberry and cassis, both on the nose and the palate. Very balanced with a smooth finish. After more time, the tannins do make an appearance. They are not intrusive, just a little dusty, and after 2.5 hours they seem resolved with the fruit. This is eminently drinkable now and will be even better in a year or two. Truly outstanding value.

Ok, let's just say that if red wine was all that was left after the Apocalypse, I would have no problem surviving. If all that was left was this Carl Roy cab I would consider myself the luckiest man left on the planet. I have tasted so many cabs in my day, but never one I would rate as highly as this. From start to finish, this is by far the best I have ever had....and not best on average score. Best in each and every category, nose, entry, midpalate and finish. Did I mention how it actually tastes? I have had a few structurally perfect wines that tasted quite good but not great. This Carl Roy wins on taste, too. Hands down. I've never personally rated any wine higher than 93 in my life. I don't know what a 97 or 98 is but this feels like it. I wish Wineaccess had 6 stars on it's histogram for this one. There better be more of this available soon, or I am gonna be one cranky wino.......
Fabulous

Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon built its reputation on Bordeaux's Left Bank. Here, in the district of Medoc, the varietal is the key component of blended wines that also may include some Merlot and Cabernet Franc, and even Malbec and Petit Verdot. 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...
