Just amazing! Massive but still smooth and subtle with no sense of age-decay. Toasted oak and dark red fruit, with long finish.

2000 Williams Selyem Pinot Noir Vista Verde Vineyard

San Benito County more

12/20/2013 - Rhone Rick wrote: 92 points

Really don't know what prior reviewers were drinking. My bottle had a crumbly cork but the wine (quick decant to remove cork pieces) was supple and smooth, tawny and sherry smell and faint sweetness on the palate that just gave way to an awesomeness of subtle wood, earth and Pinot fruit that impressed.

Syrah fruit and pepper with nicely balanced presentation. I expected no finish from the other reviews, but I was not that disappointed. Burgers, grilled onions and zucchini and nobody got hurt. Simple and satisfying.

My last bottle and still has finesse and silky tannins. Drank most on Friday, then vacu sealed and fridged---last glass on Sunday was still very good. Did not fall apart like many wines do.

For a kosher/mevushal wine, average+. Jammy red fruit, alcohol and a funky smoked tobacco Thai iced tea finish that I kinda like.

2007 Switchback Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon Peterson Family Vineyard

Amazing. Not a decant for a long while kind of wine dude. Just after opening, was big and red fruit and tobacco but a bit strong/angular and not quite integrated.....was drinking to test the waters for when to open my 3l. Tried again on second night, 24hrs in fridge and vacuum sealed. Amazing. Balanced out and flavors pulled together. Superb.

Once you get past the alcohol on the nose, the cassis and other dark fruits peek through and woody cab notes on the finish. Better than when I first got it, and maybe 2-3yrs left for my remaining bottles.
