Popped and poured. Nice nose of citrus, green apple peel, wet rock, and white flowers. On the palate, lemon zest, bright green apple, mineral, tangerine peel. Long finish. Nice lean wine, great with cheeses. Drink or hold.

We had the '06 and '10 in the past month or so and the '08 is the most backward of any. With decanting and agitation it still required 2 hours to really show. Fruit and minerals are well balanced but tannins are impossibly tight at the finish; I'm not sure what the acidity is of this wine is but we got the bitterness and heat in the finish to back off after thirty minutes opened and decanted with some good old fashioned bred and butter. 90 minutes later with duck breast Jed rep are, this wine was popping! The fruit stood out and even pushed forward on the tongue a but with multiple hues. This wine needs another year however before trying again.

Third bottle and this is showing really well now. Rich and complex without being jammy. Definately a full case wine on the HJ scale. Enjoy!

Popped, decanted and poured. Needs about 20-30 minutes to peak but opens noticeably in 5-10.

Limited notes. Dense color, sweet aromas of black fruit, roses and cedar. Almost aggressive acidity, soft tannins and a warm finish. Didn't like that balance to start with but with more air the acidity seemed to mellow a bit. Overall good but i had higher expectations. 88-90p

I went to the cellar and grabbed this bottle without a lot of thought. We PnP this wine during dinner after a 2005 Quintessa. This wine was stellar. Deep dark red tone. Wonderfully deep nose with essence of cassis, blackberries, toast and peppers. The balance of this wine was terrific with subtle tannins and just enough acidity to help with the mouthfeel and finish. And what a terrifically long finish with layers of red ripe figs, jam, black currant, toast and a hint of mint. I will definitely decant the other Forman bottles in my cellar when it's time. This wine should peak in 3-5 years.

Clear, medium intensity ruby color.

Developing nose with a medium aroma intensity. Aromas of cassis, black raspberries, oak, cedar wood, lead pencil, grass, fresh herbs, mint, cold coffee, gravel and pine.

Dry on the palate with a medium acidity, medium(+) body and medium(+) ripe tannins. The flavor intensity is medium(+) with flavors of inky, black fruits, cassis, lead pencil, cedar, cigar box and pine. The finish is medium(+) with black raspberries, sugared coffee and leather.

Drinking very good today but needs a bit of aeration. This wine is powerful with smooth, rounded edges. Very good!

It looked young, but tasted mature. Dark fruit along with cedar and tobacco. I thought it might go un-noticed at friend's barbecue, but it stood out. A Bordeaux ringer - excellent!

This is what I get for ignoring the "drink by" date in CellarTracker. Obviously WAY over the hill, but it was still "interesting". A little bit of fruit and a whole lot of mushrooms, forest floor, etc. - a Francophile's wet dream. Almost enjoyable. My one remaining bottle has "gift" written all over it.

Tasting of 3 Forman Cabernet Sauvignons. Nose of green bell pepper, smoke, plum, black cherry fruit, more of the same on the palate, like a Chateau Pichon Lalande, almost elegant, more complexity but less power than its peers tonight, medium body, long, herbal finish. My #2.

2013 Forman Chardonnay

Napa Valley more

5/15/2015 - La Cave d'Argent Likes this wine: 93 points

This straw-colored Chardonnay drinks very similar to its 2011 brethren. Green apple, citrus peel, mineral and spice aromas are followed by a medium-bodied, crisply acidic, seamlessly alcoholic (13.5%) palate with flavors which mirror the nose. Despite the fact that this wine is 100% barrel fermented and 10% new oak-aged, it retains a sense of freshness because it has not gone through malolactic fermentation. As such, the oak is nicely balanced with acid and is in no way overbearing. Solid in the middle and concluding with a lengthy crisp finish, this is in the upper-echelon of Napa Chardonnay. It should be at its best over the next 4-5 years. Drink now-2020.

decanted 1 hr Med red; first impression was of ripe black and red cherries, red currants, later some dark chocolate came in; full body with integrated tannins and great balance, later there was less cherry and more pomegranate flavor- example of the changing nose/flavors over time. Very long soft finish, most Bdx would be proud to make this wine.

Excellent wine. Opened next to a Chimney Rock Stag's Leap from the same year and the Forman blew it away. Rich and fruity on the nose, this wine has great mouthfeel. It is elegant and not overdone. The finish is impressive and the structure and complexity leads me to believe this will last for 10+ more years.

4/27/2015 - Vinnut Likes this wine: 93 points

Deep, dark reddish-purple garnet in color with ever so slight clearing at the edges. Forward, attractive & fragrant nose of complex, dark ripe fruit aromas of cherries, blackberries & currants with classic cigar box overtones of cedar & aged tobacco, leather, herbal notes, some bell pepper notes, anise, earthy, dusty, dark cocoa, minerals and a touch of vanilla in the background. Medium-full bodied with a very good concentration of balanced, still developing, silky smooth textured, complex, plush & seamless, ripe dark fruit flavors of dark cherries, blackberries & cassis with dark cocoa, herbs, minerals, earthy, spices, toasty oak & vanilla in the background. Long lingering elegant finish. Drinks quite well at present with decanting and airing but should continue to develop further with additional aging. A lovely California Cabernet which resembles a Bordeaux in style & structure.

A little closed down with very grippy tannins. You can taste the potential for those big scores, but it's not there right now. Complex nose with great feel on the palate, this just needs time to develop.

Slight off or Brett upon opening, but it straightened out quickly. Red fruits, smarties, cherries etc... Terrific blend but needs many years still.

This was a real unknown beauty! No floral noted but much like an aged Bordeaux..26 yrs! A bit of burnt orange rust in color which gained flavor and style upon decant. This is a well made Napa CAB!

4th Saturday Brown Bagger (R&D's): Dark color with aromas of black currants, plum, pepper and florals, Adds tobacco, forest floor and roasted bell pepper notes as it sits in the glass. I am reminded of the 2000 Pichon Lalande. There are still some tannins on the palate, though they are softened and not obtrusive. Flavors of back fruit and cedar, saddle leather and tobacco with a long finish. The palate does not have the depth or power of the '00 PLL so I guessed 2000 Reserve de la Comtesse. Another taster guessed 1990 Pauillac. This was WOTN for many of us.

I was surprised to see that this was our Forman. It had been double decanted two and a half hours before the flight was served and changed dramatically in that time. Loads of leather and plummy dark fruit on opening to a complex and beautiful Bordeaux ringer. A terrific example of this wine, with plenty of life left.
