    Always fun to try some AB.

    A nose that could be a Cab. Straight out of the decanter I get a thin attack with a swelling mid-to-finish mouthfeel. After some time, it evens out a bit, but is still on the thin side in the beginning. I get a lot of secondary stuff, chocolate, etc and some chalky tannins, but not tons of fruit. Some unsweet maraschino notes perhaps (if there is such a thing) and some cured meat. Not overly oaky, but it's there. For price, a good value. (88 pts.)
