Community Tasting Notes 15
September 24, 2013 - At this point, a nice surprise.
Pasts its peak? Oh sorry but I I'm glad to inform you this bottle was delicious and ready to be kept a few years more.
Translucent cherry colour.
Meaty nose with those herbal notes that CF always brings.
On the palate still acid and with those mellow tannins that many really appreciate. Dense, silky texture.
If were a blind tasting it could be easily a Bordeaux growth.
En este momento, una bonita sorpresa.
¿Pasadita? Lo siento pero no esta botella está lista y puede aguantar algunos años mas.
Color cereza transparente.
Nariz a carne con esas notas herbales que la CF da siempre.
Todavía ácida y con esos taninos melosos en boca que a tantos nos gustan de verdad. Textura densa, a seda.
Si fuera una cata a ciegas podría fácilmente ser un Burdeos gama alta.

December 4, 2010 - Magnum. I was pleasantly surprised by this wine. not a very good vintage for Napa Cab, but this didn't have the green notes that I have tasted in many 2000's. It was in a nice place as far as fruit and tannin balance.
