Cab is king here in California and this is the example – filled with equal parts swagger, charisma and fortitude – that loudly expounds upon why. Impeccably crafted, it’s still tightly wound, like a seasoned actress playing hard to get. Slowly you get a sense of what’s underneath, and then, before you know it, you’re in deep. Inviting, intriguing, big, bright and balanced. Patience is justly and lovingly rewarded for this rock star of a Cab. If you’re drinking it before the end of 2014, decant it and wait for it to let you in.
