Community Tasting Notes 98

January 4, 2017 - Decanted 3 hours and ready for New Years Eve dinner.
Daaark, thick and viscous with dark cherry and blackberry flavors. Aromas of sandalwood and spice though light on the oak here. Integrating beautifully with silky smooth, ripe tannins and decent acidity. A perfect match for beef Wellington.

December 11, 2016 - 3 Years since my last bottle and this wine is much better! Mostly black fruit with cassis, a touch of blueberry liquor, chocolate, and some spice. Long finish. Excellent balance. Last sip was the best telling me this still has some upside potential. Still not as good as the '08 SS to me. But really starting to come into its own.

November 27, 2016 - One of the best faces of California wine. Very well integrated with distinct layers and dark fruit as well as hints of chocolate. Wonderful finish. Nose lacked distinction and here is where it lost a point or 2.
Opened at family dinner at Cut 34 in Florida. A comment from a non wine critic family member was "this is the smoothest wine I have ever tasted." I in large part I agree. Mouthfeel is great!2 people found this helpful Comment

November 25, 2016 - ouff que c`est beau ce vin là…pas donné, mais plus que du bonbon et l`occasion s`y prête, pour mes 51 chandelles.
Un nez qui saute sur verre.
Tout en velour et en fruit, un vin dense et riche ou rien n`accroche, loooooong et délicieux.
This wine literally sang out of the glass, velvety muscles one said, quite complex and immensely long…a great wine.

November 19, 2016 - Decanted for 3 hours. Not as extracted or overripe as the newer versions (especially the regular bottling). Still viscous with chewy tannin. Palate of chocolate cherry, cassis liqueur, blueberry, and some minerality. So rich and mouthcoating. Has 10 years plus to reach full maturity.2 people found this helpful Comments (1)
