2009 Liberty School Cabernet Sauvignon Paso Robles
- Central Coast
- Paso Robles
Community Tasting Notes 80
December 29, 2015 - At this stage of its decline (this is a bottom-end '09, after all), it can't decide if it's Cherry Coke or pipe tobacco. Extremely disjointed, with very little to offer anymore. For L this was just short of a sink pour; for me it was a novelty given the memories we made with early vintages from this winery during our newspaper days.

December 24, 2014 - I had tried this wine 18 months ago and liked it a lot more at that time. The nose is fine, but I found the latest bottle too syrupy, almost like cough medicine. It may be that the bottle is in decline. Still enjoyable with Italian seafood on Xmas Eve, just not as good as last time.

December 7, 2014 - Pleasant wine, but its lower rating comes from having a nice buildup in nose and initial taste, but it is bland in the middle and end. I think it is at its peak or on its way down for aging; so drink up.

November 26, 2014 - Definitely losing steam, and time to drink up. But still provides nice memories of L's and my poor-as-churchmice days as reporters when this wine was our splurge as a second or third label for Caymus. Orange red color with still-nice legs in the glass. Port-like in bouquet and palate with little fruit left. Heat in the finish, even when served from the cellar, where it has been stored since release.

April 3, 2014 - This Cab Sauv is a very good value purchase. It still has a bit of fruit and the tannin has softened. Deep purple color.
The 2009 vintage probably needs to be consumed in 2014, although I will keep one a few more years to see if it still improves.
