The Nectar Of Life

2011 iSauce:  Massive oak and sharp sort of awkward ripeness in the nose with an interesting vegetal streak.  Densely fruited, but meager of body and finish.  I can’t really call it flabby because it honestly feels kinda thin.  Ripe, but meager.  Weird and disjointed.  Not *flawless* like manufactured Napa cabs of this ilk.  Oak again dominates entire palate far into the cab-franc finish.  Don’t understand the appeal.  You DO know you can buy 3 INTERESTING bottles of wine for this price?
