A must decant. Enticing nose with black cherry and dark fruit, liqueur notes and big flavors with cedar, anise, cassis and blackberry notes. This wine evolves with decanting. I would suggest letting it rest for several months and I believe it will improve greatly. 91 point with a huge upside.

Deep purple color, smooth and medium finish, drank like a classic Rutherford wine. Very nice.

Followed a 2012 Quivet Kenefick Ranch and the Scarlett came across quite sweet as previously noted by JAXPAJ. The first bottle a week or so ago showed better by itself. Still nice structure but too sweet for me especially when following a stronger cab.

I just love all Mike Smith wines. He and Russell Bevan just make my style of wine!This wine is outstanding especially for the QPR. Drinking very well right now. Smooth, but with some tannin present. Cherry nose and mid palate. Bravo.

A little tight, but we drank immediately after decanting. Lots of promise. This opened up after first glass. Will lay the rest down for a few years

Wow, nice QPR. Reminds me of a softer version of the 2012 12c Georges Reserve - somewhat similar flavor profile but just lighter. Popped and poured but drank over two hours. Improved with time. I personally can't see 95 points according to Parker because I don't believe it has the structure for such a rating with time but I've been wrong many times before. WA anticipated maturity 2015 to 2035.

Had the rest of the bottle on day two and quite a drop off which always worries me in regards to age-worthiness. Drank next to a 2012 Quivet Kenefick Ranch on day two which was quite a bit better.

Decant of about an hour and a half. Drank over about another 2 hours. Wonderful velvety mouthfeel. Lots of flint and earth flavors. A feminine nose of rose petals accented by white pepper. I enjoyed this wine immensely. Another beauty from Mike Smith and a really nice value.

Agree with other tasting notes mostly, think would be better with food than on its own, lots of fruit/berry on the nose, similar to another 2009 Rutherford Cab i've tasted but slightly better. Took an hour or more in the glass to come together

In line with previous vintages of this wine. This needs time right now, and we only gave it an hour of slow ox in the bottle before diving in. Started to open up an hour later. I can see where this would be in the 94 range with ample air time or spending a while sideways.

Notes are the same as the previous. Parker likes it at 95 points and I can see it getting better, but 90.6 Points for now.

This is a wine is exceptionally good, Mike Smith does it again! Big, tamed dark fruit, berries, cassis, voluptuous legs and meniscus, pleasant tannins, chocolate and subtle sweet oak and tobacco. Popped & Poured, but I will say that a little more time on the side will make this one better. 90.7 Points.

Just fantastic stuff. No formal notes -- very friendly wine, disappeared so quickly I'm not sure what happened (I know what happened).

I think prior CT scores influenced my score, but the wine is excellent.

The nose is very pleasant with cola, blackberries and a hint of barrel toast.

On the palette, the wine has an excellent mouthfeel. It tastes consistent with the nose, with the slightest hint of baking chocolate. Tannins are ripe and need age to further integrate. Overall, I would describe the wine as precise, clean and textured. An excellent effort, and for me, a winery to watch.

Initial pour showed strawberry on the front end and black cherry on the finish. Pretty light feel overall. Slo ox for 4 hours did wonders. Gaining in weight. Black cherry throughout with some toasty oak and rounded mouthfeel. A few more hours some cola and graphite show up. Still has some tannins which need to integrate but a very enjoyable wine right now with a little air.

This probably needs a bit more time. Very powerful and primary right now, and needs to integrate a bit more. Red fruits and loamy soil. Still a very nice wine and happy that I have several more bottles.

Mike Smith Winemaker Event (Fulton Market Kitchen - Chicago): Plums, dirty herbs. Really acid driven and lots of tannins to integrate. Potential but needs some time.
