Community Tasting Notes 8

    July 8, 2015 - Not a note but just needed to add that a second bottle of this opened tonight is even fresher than the first. And while this isn't a profound wine it certainly comes close to being so. Quite outstanding for a 23 year old Napa blend, this is just delicious.

    June 4, 2015 - Popped and aerated in bottle for about 3-4 hours, black cherry hue with just a hint of bricking. Upon first pour shows lovely older Napa Cab aromas of plummy fruits, old cedar shavings, crushed spices, dried herbs and leather along with a whiff of vanilla-tinged pipe tobacco. Becomes more Bordeaux like with air and swirling, the nose evolving from sweet pipe tobacco into more one of cigar box and stones. Medium-plus body, nicely concentrated at age 23. Cherry fruits, ripe currant, mint, nori wrapper, smoke and herbaceous notes along with an impression of crushed stones on the palate. Chewy tannins remain unresolved on the lengthy close.
    Delicious Cabernet, seems to be peaking now but will last for many more years.

    January 12, 2015 - funny enough others said drink this now, i found this to be still young / big and rich / in your face / a bit hot… maybe it is just stylistic (which style i don't like) or maybe it just needed more time… was unpleasant on days one and two, almost poured it out… then was better on night three, but still not yet great

    March 29, 2014 - Wow. No one would guess that this wine is 22 years old. It has nicely balanced acidity with soft tannins and plenty of fruit. The nose is classic Cali Cab although it is only 60% cab...great mouth feel as well. This one was built to age but at or past peak.
