Calculated Risk would be better named “Sure Bet,” especially at this price. This blockbuster Rutherford cab is dense and deep with an intense nose of blackberry jam. The palate reveals expressive red fruit and a soft core of tannins that makes this both juicy and memorable. Talk about a delicious deal!
Plenty of savory aromas here with black olive, mushroom and oyster shell, layered with blackcurrant and tobacco leaf. It’s medium-to full-bodied with firm, sleek tannins. Structured and flavorful.
