2012 Tamber Bey Rabicano Deux Chevaux Vineyard

Yountville Red Bordeaux Blend more

7/15/2015 - MXL wrote: 89 points

No need to decant. Great bright fruit up front with and earthy, dark fruit finish, delightful play on profiles. Got mine at a great price, less than $40. At this price a no brainer. Easy drinker, do not serve too cold, nuance in profile will be lost. Interested to see if there is room for improvement with more time in cellar, 2 bottles left.

Decadently rich blackberry jammy mocha-chocolate spicy greatness. Velvety and supple smooth. A Father's Day treat.

Black cherry anise eucalyptus with a 1hour decant. Gracious alive it was more than great. Finish very smooth and probably has another 4-5 years of life, maybe more but alas my only bottle.

Was disappointed with this bottle after tasting with the winemaker. It was very oaky but really disjointed in makeup. I know '11 was tough and maybe had something to do with the outcome or it was " still " way to young.

Cliff lede - cedar oak not much fruit on nose. Delicious bodied fruit on mouth. Great with food. As it opened became dryer...
