 Tasted by arthrovine on 3/3/2015 flawed bottle: Corked.

Damn, I think there was brilliance underneath that cork flaw. Those of you whom with this bottle in your cellar are mighty lucky (210 views)
 Tasted by RobertB321 on 11/27/2014 & rated 91 points: Sugar plum and raisin aromas. Well extracted flavors. Some smokiness. Long lasting. Very dark color. (258 views)
 Tasted by paydon9 on 4/6/2014 & rated 88 points: Deep red. Smoke, blueberry, salumi, leather, vanilla nose. Blackberry, pepper, leather, medium-long finish. Smooth tannins and fairly lively acid. This should last a few more years, although I’m not sure it will improve much. (415 views)
 Tasted by Dave Smigielski on 3/17/2014 & rated 89 points: Needed about 2 hours in the decanter and it started to open up brilliantly (621 views)
 Tasted by blakel on 8/27/2013 & rated 89 points: I think this vintage has peaked. Good, but no longer great. Drink up! (674 views)
 Tasted by europat55 on 7/13/2013 & rated 90 points: Still in pretty good shape. (557 views)
 Tasted by blakel on 5/25/2013 & rated 90 points: A bit more modest, subdued than the other Cabots I've had recently. Nice whiff of Bacon and smoke on the PnP, then those aromas blew off, leaving a nicely balanced simple syrah, After an hour or so it started to open up again, but most of the bottle is drunk! Not too shabby, but not a stunner like some of the later vintages. (533 views)
 Tasted by Eric on 1/10/2013: Classic Cabot. Meaty, dusky, with hints of mint and eucalyptus. Shocking red fruit. Extremely fresh. (2112 views)
 Tasted by jdabrowski1027 on 11/21/2012 & rated 92 points: Delicious. Meaty, bloody, olive nose, with much more of the same on the palate. Very old world in style, this shows very little alcohol, while having a firm acid backbone. Great. (702 views)

California

California Wines (Wine Institute of California)

California is one of the most diverse wine regions in the world, with almost 100 grape varieties grown in over 100 viticultural areas, including dozens of ­different microclimates and soil types, as well as a very individualistic set of ­winemakers, many with international experience, which adds to and deepens that diversity.

North Coast

The North Coast American Viticultural Area (AVA) in California, covering more than three million acres, includes Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino and Lake counties, and portions of Marin and Solano counties. (see The Wine Institute for more information)
