Much improvement on Day 2. This has potential to get up to the 95 range.

Either an off bottle or the wine is entering a dumb phase. Drank over 3 nights(Vacuum sealed): night 1, I thought it may be a corked bottle 85-86pt. Night 2, better but still sub par to other bottles 89-90. Night 3, Fruit and Oak arrived and the harsh edge disappeared, 91pt.

Drinking better than the last bottle. My end up being a tremendous wine but needs patience. I would wait another year at least.

This will divide the room. Floral tones, vanilla, and cotton candy dominate the nose. On the palate all are still present, toasted oak, blk/blue fruit, and creamy tannins. This is the type of wine that some will say is what is wrong with CA cab and others will LOVE.

Not ready to open. Hints of the signature flavors of Kenefick but the wine is currently shut down, needs time.

2013 Carter Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Fortuna Block

Oakville more

12/7/2015 - jaxpaj wrote: 96 points

WOTN against some very good bottles: '08 Lillian Blue label, '08 Kapcsandy Estate Cuvee, '11 Robert Foley Claret, '13 Quivet Kenefick Ranch Cab, and '12 Hobel. My first bottle of the Fortuna vineyard and it is a wonderful addition to the lineup. This has a chance to rival the To-Kalons. Big night of drinking so no specific notes but remember it being a classic Mike Smith/Carter Cabernet.

This score may be a touch low. This is drinking very well right now. This is my 5th bottle and by far the best. Wish I had waited longer for the others but glad I still have 1 left. Excellent Cabernet!!

This has classic napa cab characteristics. Firm tannins, a touch of dust, but maybe a little thin. Past years have been better. I was thinking '12 would of been better.

This will be a polarizing wine. This either tiptoes right up to the edge of indulgence. Huge, thick, and powerful wine. I think this is what Caymus 40th wanted to be. I am still torn but glad I purchased a couple of cases, this will give me plenty of opportunity to develop my opinion. 90-96pts.

The tannins are keeping the wine closed. This has real potential. I would give it 2-3 years before opening.

As long as you can get over the sweet tones then you will like the wine. A definite step backwards in comparison to other vintages. Such a shame to have an off year when everyone else had a great '12.
