Very dark color. Wonderful dark fruit aroma. No acidic imbalance. Decently long finish. This wine went very well with ribeye steak. Very smooth. We all enjoyed this wine at the Silver Fox restaurant in Richardson Texas.

What a great bottle! Perfect time to taste and drink. Let it decant for an hour, and it was ready to go!! One of the better vintages and bottles I have had all year!

This wine is drinking beautifully here and now. Clearly the tannic structure is still strong but now more of a backbone than the full body. The body has rounded out, less fruit but with amazing depth of earth, loam, some wet leaves and just a touch of camphor, very slight. The nose is dominated by pepper and fruit. The finish is gorgeous and lasts so long that our bottle went on for over two hours, as this wine demanded small sips to enjoy the lingering finish. I only bought 3. I wish I bought a case!

Perfect pairing with a grilled strip steak rubbed with Herbs de Provance. Very smooth tannins and full body. This wine is drinking very nice right now.

Beautifully balanced, will continue to get better over the next 3-4 years. Fruit is nice but not close to overpowering, the tannic structure secure but not dominant. Did not require any decanting.

A vibrant nose of dark fruits and spices, dark garnet in color. A medium to full bodied Cab blend, with currants, black cherry, licorice and vanilla spice on long elegant finish. A very good wine, decant for best results, was one of some great B-Day wines. www.winelx.com

When a cuvee with a good reputation meets a vintage with a spotty reputation, it is usually the vintage that comes out with its reputation intact! This rule, though it has exceptions, held in this case. This wine was pleasant and drinkable, but a bit out of balance to my taste, with some alcoholic heat. The fruit-forward style would have benefitted from a bit more tannic grip. Nose was a bit better than the palate. Still, a nice bottle, but not a star.

I was worried about this one. I've had bad look cellaring FN in he past. BUT that was in the past as this time the wine came through with strong aromatics great garnet color and soft but structured tannins present. Good oak backing with black current and trademark licorice notes. I have a few more of these and based on this tasting they have some more time before rolling over. Not sure it will carry until 2020 but 2-3 years easy.

Opaque dark red color. concentrated nose. Complex, layered. Earthy, leather, spices, dark fruits. Still tannic, can use another few years.

Mostly light fruit nose with a inky dark color in the glass. Palate shows a continuation of the red fruits with very light tannins.

Amazing! Decanted 2 hrs. Soft and delicate for a Cali cab. Lingering fruit on nose and mid palate. Mild tannins, ready to drink. Had along with a 2008 Caymus SS and made a nice contrast from that big cab.

(Tasted at the winery) Cedar notes in the bouquet and on the palate with nicely integrated tannins. A pleasant and correctly made wine. Just not very exciting, especially at this price point.

(Tasted at the winery) First bottle was corked (was interesting to taste corked and not-corked wines side-by-side). Very expressive and vibrant. Deep purple and alluring legs. Dusty cherry and blackberry notes throughout. Firm tannins, but still finishes on the light side. But up until the finish a very nice ride.

Wine is drinking really well right now. Soft opening with lots of dark fruit. After about an hour it showed signs of more tannins and stronger flavors like cedar.

Brought to a restaurant for corkage and was decanted. Inviting nose, nice but restrained palate. Currant notes are prominent but also some subtle oak influences. Great mouth-feel. Still seems fairly young. The finish is clipped a little short, otherwise a structured and serious wine.
