- Brick color with slow forming legs. It's balanced and has flavours of black currant, dusty and black pepper with a medium body. Round texture with a medium finish - Aging well. Black Fruit still exposed and settled.

Better tha than the Silver but also twice the price. Only two barrels made so price is high. Very smooth with dried cherry and some heat on the finish. I like this wine but QPR hurts rating. the Silver at half the price is much better value and nearly as good. Winery tasting is a lot of fun though this wine is not poured given the price.

So here we are several years past the last posted comment. The "Coda" if you will to Garden's "Coda" to my comments back 9 years ago in 2006. This wine is still very drinkable. Is it youthful and full of life? No. Does it have a tremendous tannin structure giving it a long time to live? No. But it is good and very drinkable. No color fade that you see in wines 10+ years of age. Not a tremendous amount of sediment build up. Just a nice, easy drinking California blend. Certainly if you have any left it is time to let go and pop the cork as the time is near the end. Tasted blind against 20+ other wines including a 97 Quilceda Creek, 2001 Ch. Rieussec, 2000 Leonetti Merlot, 2002 Cristal, 2005 Williams Selyem Zinfandel, 2012 Jayson Cabernet Sauvignon, 2012 Buccella Merlot and many more and everyone in the room was shocked to see the vintage be from 99. The color and taste certainly didn't indicate so.

Nice cab, still a little tight but with patience comes reward.

Really dry but nice mouth feel. Lots of fruit at the open given ay to some wood and an earthy finish.

A nose of some dark fruit and spice, dark garnet in color. A medium to full bodies red, with blackberry, black cherry, milk chocolate and some spice on finish. I am a big fan of John Caldwell’s wines but this was a disappointment, lacked backbone, not a good value. www.winelx.com

My first Caldwell rose. best bottle of domestic rose I have had. I would drink more rose if it tasted like this. Round and full bodied with lower acid than most french rose.

Excellent when first opened, complex cassis-herbal-syrah blend of aromas and flavors. Color is still garnet, mostly opaque, but with slight browning edges. However, the fruit started to fade after an hour, even more the next evening, leaving tannin and alcohol. I think this wine is a bit past its peak and should be consumed. We have really enjoyed John Caldwell's wines, but this vintage is getting a bit old.
