US Cabernet Sauvignon: Violent wine, sweet smell and taste, black currants moving towards black current jam. You have to tolerate this very big and sweet style to appreciate this.

US Cabernet Sauvignon: Fine fruit, some smoke and minerals, some depth; a sweetish streak through the whole taste curve.

US Cabernet Sauvignon: A bit anonymous and faded smell at first, opens up after a while with more minerality, but becomes jammy after that.

lovely stuff, potential for more....a bit tight, but it was a pop and pour. very intrigued by the potential here. black fruit, a bit overwhelmed on the mid-palate by the oak at this point.

Pale garnet with brickish rim. A faded old beauty of a cab at age 34 which was pleasant and interesting to drink though a ways past its prime.

Ruby color with very little bricking. Bing and black cherries, some raspberry, and assorted hints of sweet Oak, tobacco, hard leather and dried herbs. The wine took about an hour to fully come around. Very little sediment. This would have scored much higher but for the slightly thin mid palate and a finish that was only about 10 to 15 seconds. A lovely bottle that would have been just as wonderful 3 to 5 years from now.

Dark fruits and some beef on the nose. The palate has high acidic pitch with some sweet dark cherries and connamon. Good wine.

Forward, early drinking, medium bodied, fresh wine, with a dark cherry personality that is meant for easy drinking pleasure.

Stylish, polished, lush and fresh, the wine has an earthy, smoke filled personality with additional nuances of licorice and sweet, ripe, blackberries. Forward with round tannins, this should drink well young and as other vintages have proved, age quite nicely.

No particular notes, but cork was solid, color and texture on point. Nose was multidimensional and palate smooth with oak, fruit and tannins sitting in harmony. Went quickly after after 30 min decant

Drinking fine right now. Although I do believe it does not have a long life ahead of it.

Dark cherry, earth, and mushroom. Delicious now with lots of life left. I didn't realize snow was in the forecast - Flannery burgers on the grill and this lovely wine. Probably would have planned differently if I listened to the weather.

Smooth, tannins fully integrated, fruit is fading. Nose was earthy, bordering on rotten mossy forest. Palate was phenomenal. Not as good as last bottle, but conclusion is still... drink up!

On est loin du sublime 2010, un vin axé sur l'extraction, très fruité mais assez unidimensionnel.
Un nes sur le chocolat, le chêne et les mures.
En bouche, l'acidité est assez basse, grosse masse de fruits noir et de bois avec des épices et des tannins assez gommant.
La finale est longue sur la chauffe.
Merci l'ami de m'avoir fait gouter à ce vin dernièrement en succursalle, dire que j'en aurais probablement acheté hier avec le 20% de rabais!!!

Mature but still vibrant. Best bottle of the 3 I've had from this vintage. An hour or two of breathing helped.

Fantastic wine. Was disappointed upon opening and even after 4-6 hrs of decanting. Like others have said, this wine needs a LOT of time. Re-visited the second night, and was treated to a really wonderful wine full of fruit, earth and leather.

This magnum was richer, more complex and longer on the palate than the 5/23/10 bottle. Very elegant, integrated and suave. This delicious California cab was the WOTN among many great magnums for many of the New Years Eve participants.

Disappointed... This wine is not ready to drink yet. While the nose is very expressive,the tannic finish is tight, grippy, and drying. The 2004 vintage blows this away at a similar age. While I hope this just needs more time in the bottle, there is something about the tannin that leads me to believe it will never be fully integrated.

Meat, smoke, vanilla, mint, big chewy tannic mouthful, but tons of black and red fruits to balance it out.

Very accessible after a two hour vigorous decant. I agree with PTGENLH, this wine is a bit thinner but still drinks pretty well right now. Very Napa like flavor profile, but definitely a weak vintage for this estate.
