 Tasted by WinePT on 2/9/2013 & rated 86 points: This wine is transitioning between red and black fruits to more earth and mushrooms. A bit awkward right now. Would've been interesting to have held onto this longer and let the transition fully happen. I've experienced this with the 1997 Barboursville Cab Sauv and it was wonderful. (528 views)
 Tasted by Seventy on 7/26/2008 & rated 85 points: Let me put it this way. There's absolutely nothing negative about this bottle. However, the positives are few. It's smooth and not at all complex, with no real finish. When I continued having it with a chicken dish with heavy sauce, it got completely lost. However, like I said, that's not necessarily bad. For those who don't like strong wines, such as those just being introduced to wine, this could be a good bottle to start with. It's a decent red that won't make either the beginners or the experts grimace. (898 views)
