Opinion: I would recommend this.
Other Comments: This is the Veyron of Cabernets, a 400-mile-per-hour, flat-out slalom that would wreck the ordinary. This finely balanced, masterfully crafted, 1,000 horsepower vintage manages to civilize all the raw power and make for an awesome, elegant ride paved with raspberries, vanilla, deep dark cherries and well-managed tannins and oak that make this as smooth as shifting into seventh gear. Hold on for one helluva ride!
