For dinner tonight I wanted Chinese and a cabernet sauvignon, which I admit is not always a propitious mix. But I ended up opting for Beef with Broccoli from Cook's Illustrated and a 2003 Caymus, which ended up being a very pleasant match.
The Caymus had shed most of its tannin, leaving behind a mix of soft fruit and a few markers of a mature cabernet. Cassis, blackberry, star anise, mint, cedar. Grade: 89
