OMG, this is still powerful. Possibly the best 14 year old wine I've had so far. The best part is it has more to give and I have another bottle. Tasting notes on it are spot on so if you can get it with perfect provenance you will not be disappointed I promise. And as a side note, all of Spring Mountain Vineyard wine is above bar so go visit and try their lineup of great wines.

2012 Alpha Omega Cabernet Sauvignon Sunshine Valley

Napa Valley more

OMG! Unbelievable wine! This will only get better in the bottle. Believe it or not but burnt butter, brown sugar, nutty, pumpkin seed rich unctuous ripe, ripe black fruit, cassis, super concentrated. Someone I recently read described this as fruity. No! In my mind this doesn't fall into that category's the all. You will want to sip this as it changes multiply times throughout the evening. In my opinion Alpha Omega is crushing it in Napa with dominant Cabernets. This is a single vineyard star in their lineup and isn't even their best one!!

A few more years and I think it will be awesome-er. Notes of chocolate and blueberries abound. Soft tannins and short finish.

"One of my favorite wineries in Paso. This is a big brambly, chewy, graphite laden jewel. Graphite and black fruit with black lava on the nose. Smoooooooth on the palate for a huge wine. Decanted for 1.5 hours."

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.

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.
