03 Robert Young Scion Cabernet ($70) ☺☺☺☺

We tried the 03, 04 and 05 in a vertical tasting. The 03 was the clear winner. Lush tannins, great blackcurrant and plum fruit and a hint of cedar on the nose. We opened this about 1 hour before drinking and it was in my opinion probably at its peak. Comprising of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc, 9% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot it is essentially a Bordeaux classic mix.
