Another one from last night at a friend's house in Charlotte, NC
Initially showed rather hot (despite a moderate alcohol level...under 14%), but with an hour of air it really settled down. Low acid, ripe red and black fruit, and just enough tannin to know it's Cab, but not enough to offend non-geek palates. Actually quite pleasant, though I won't be running out to stock the cellar with more.
Talk less, smile more. Don't let them know what you're against or what you're for.
