Similar to previous bottle in terms of flavors but this bottle came across very plump and soft on the palate this time. I'm not sure if the wine is already fading fast or the structure felt soft due to being drank after a bigger cab.

Largest gap ever between tasting notes (2006-2015)? Nothing wrong with this. Obvious chocolate notes coming through the grape juice (and I can't usually discern such subtleties), but still balance and not grossly over the hill. But don't wait (if you have a bottle and were waiting for someone to tell you it's OK to drink).

Medium gold color. Rich, buttery wine with corn and butterscotch. Drank at a lobster boil and this still paired well but the fruit has definitely faded from my previous bottles. It was better two or three years ago but everyone that drank it was still impressed by the texture and mouth feel.

Red purple. This bottle showed fairly one dimensional favors with red and blue fruit, a bit of tobacco, and smooth tannins.

Remarkable balance between powerful acidity and fruit concentration. A very much alive wine, evolving with air. Great texture and long finish.

Lots of sweet cherries and some wood smoke and spices in the nose; fruity and smooth on the palate, with black cherries and Asian spices, yet missing some desirable complexity; medium-long finish; overall, rather enjoyable when paired with grilled steak, so 88-89 points.

Last bottle, and am I sorry. Gave it very little decanting. Tannins are perfectly integrated - very smooth, lively moth feel. Red fruit, but not bright, more like slightly desiccated and concentrated. This was a joy to drink! I guess it's on to the 2005s.

w whole wheat casarecce in a ragu of heirloom tomatoes, wood-grilled bluefish, oil-cured olives marinated in red pepper flakes, black walnuts, and Sorrento lemon rind and juice.

Obviously, I sought a big wine to match those tastes, and this fit the bill. More nuanced than on release (when it was a hedonistic fruit bomb), yet still deep body and good fruit. Years of life ahead.

One hour later -- the oak and tannins mentioned in other notes are beginning to take center stage.

Purchased at Bonefish Grill for dinner. Big nose and tannins to match on opening. The tannins quickly subsided and nice, medium bodied flavors came to the front. The nose gradually receded. Nice wine for dinner.

My 3rd bottle that continues to taste relatively young and gets much smoother with 1-2 hours of air. Classic buttery candy with good acidity. Should get better with a year or two.

4/17/2015 - Henman Likes this wine: 92 points

The label(Newtonian) was a bit different on this bottle that was bought from Germany. Upon popping the cork broke into 2 pieces; the lower piece being totally soaked and stained. Decanted for 1/2 hour. On the nose some dark cassis toned fruit, tobacco and manure. On the palate it was still kicking nicely, delivering subtle dark fruit with beautiful tertiary flavors like barnyard and hints of tobacco. Almost resolved tannins. Smooth and complex. This wine has aged gracefully and seems to be in a perfect spot right now. What a great buy for 35€ !

2008 was a classic Cabernet year. the Newton Cab. has a medium body but not the depth of a Spring Mountain Cab. but, well made. With silky tannins with nice blackberry and current overtones. It has somewhat of a short finish and is a good $30+ Napa Cab. value. Drink through 2018.

Allowed the wine to open 1 1/2 hours before drinking. Nose is cherry with earth notes, medium bodied, dried cherry on the palette, with a pleasing earth brit moment before the pleasant tannins on the finish hit. Enjoyed with a salad. I was pleased with the bottle relative to the reviews I had read. I think the bottle probably should be consumed within the year.

Big, rich and ripe with really intense flavors of creme brulee, butterscotch, apple and apricot. Reminded me of a Rombauer chard, but with more complexity and a bit less sweetness. This is almost a caricature of a Napa chardonnay - with lots of buttery oak, a full body and very ripe fruits. But it also has enough acidity to keep it fresh and bright. If you like big, flavorful, buttery chards, then this is for you.
