2005 Hundred Acre Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon The Ark Vineyard

Community Tasting Notes 30

March 5, 2016 - Incredible aromatics, a lot of violet and florals. Big flavor, lots of black cherry, dark fruit, some tar, but long long finish. These 100 Acres are such great cabs. If any complaint there is a tiny bit of heat, as the alcohol is well over 15%.

October 16, 2015 - This was a total stunner right out of the gate. Decanted for one hour and then the bottle was gone very quick. Might be the smoothest wine I've ever had.

July 12, 2015 - Splash decanted
Dark wine red
Massive Dark cherry, chocolate, a tiny hint of cola, cherry cola on nose. Delicious cherry, tobacco and chocolate flavor a bit oakie, quite a bit of heat which seems to be a bit overwhelming. Having said that this is a delicious wine. Long 20 seconds finish. Acid is medium low. Weight heavy. Really nice mouth feel. Alcohol is a bit high. Very tasty stuff drinking very well right now.

November 30, 2014 - Day after party 2014. Lush. Party in the mouth. Should have decanted longer than I did.
