Exceeded expectations. Glass decanted for one hour. Drank whole bottle over steak dinner. Leather and small hints of fruit on second glass. Awesome. Drink now.

Great balance and not your overpowering cab. Hints of red cherry. As good as I remember from 3ish years ago when first tasted.

Both my wife picked up a hint of pine early on - still a nice glass of wine. As the glass opened up the hint of pine increased. Vac-sealed rest of bottle and tried the next day - the pine was so strong it was undrinkable.

Hot and Cab Franc like first night - ate with ribeyes. Second night mellowed out and was smooth. Liked the second night better but both were good.

Drank one-half one night and the other half two nights later. Second night was better! Right-on in terms of balance, flavor, bubbles and taste. If had others would hang on to for a while.

Exceptionally smooth with a slight hint of menthol on the first taste. Good with wood or without. Easy to drink - pop open for any crowd. Los of sediment.

2003 Archery Summit Pinot Noir Arcus Estate

Dundee Hills more

11/6/2010 - robertr wrote: 89 points

3 liter bottle. Had with a duck cassoulet and dinner party. Fruit seemed to linger around the edges and jump out at you from different parts of the sip and mouth over the night. The wine did not evolve in a line over the night - almost erratic. I am not sure where I am on this wine - perhaps out-kicks my coverage but seems to let me down each time.

Thin. Did not improve as the night went on. Think can just pop and serve. Good but was expecting something a little more for the price.

Decanted for ~ 1 hour and drank with dinner. One of best wines of the year but a bit biased bc a big birthday for me. Well balanced, not overly complex and well rounded tannins. A bit lighter in the mouth than some of Hobb's blockbusters.

2004 Raymond Vineyard & Cellar Cabernet Sauvignon Generations

Had this with Christmas meal of beef tenderloin. Tiny amount of grit in two bottles opened. Seemed to remember it was drinking better last year (served at the 2008 Christmas meal). Opened (but did not decant) for two hours. Balanced but not as velvety as I recall from past tastings. I would agree with the previous posting of not a blockbuster.

Light cabernet with nice small tannin near the end. Light red fruit and campfire tastes in a nice balance for a nicely complex wine. Holding onto a few more bottles to see how it evolves.

Holiday tradition of crab-stuffed mushrooms on the porch with a roaring fire. This wine always does the trick with shellfish. Full bodied but not over-oaked. Seemed more flowery than I remember bottles in the past.

Balanced and down the middle. Not overly complex, somewhat juicy (in a good way) and extremely easy to drink. Great cocktail wine.
