But you can tell it is definitely a Bordeaux and not from California. The Cabernet Sauvignon is really nice and true to the grape. Great wine with hamburgers or steak. So many restaurants carry it that I have probably drunk 15 bottles or so.
From everything I know, you could stand one of these puppies on end for five years and suffer no ill effects. They probably would benefit in the short run from possibly aging a touch faster. But probably nothing could be noticed for five years or longer. Heat! that's the bare bodkin.
