Lee reviewed this wine:

Grape Variety: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon Very Good wine with mixed black plum and ripe black raspberries over cigar box and touch of chocolate. The medium tannins are grippy but balance the medium acidity giving fine structure. The medium plus fruit intensity and concentration give a medium plus finish. Drink now and for the next 5-6 years as it will improve with a year or two of age.
