    Drinking nicely. Still takes at least a 30 minute decant to make this quite a bit more palatable. I've noticed that, for the most part, the Texas terroir note that is VERY present in (ALL) Texas red wines needs time to soften. This wine is no exception even though it has roughly 10% "Phinney stock wine." This wine has nice raspberry and tobacco notes. Has a jammy plum tart towards the finish. This wine has good tannin, but isn't really full bodied at all. I am glad I have more of these, because I do expect it to soften.

  • 2010 Nickel & Nickel Cabernet Sauvignon Rock Cairn

    Wow, this wine is still REALLY locked up. Was finally expressing itself somewhat after a couple of hours. Cork with zero bleed, and a dark raspberry colored stain on the cork. Nose is classic Oakville and blackberry combined with black pepper and baking spice. The entry is all blackberry, dense, baking spice dominates the middle. Oak barrel finish. Still kind of short finish, killed prematurely by the oak, but to be expected for such a REALLY young wine. Hold this one -- still has quite a bit of life left.

  • 2008 Cimarossa Cabernet Sauvignon Riva Di Levante

    Nice wine. Little more brambly here, but this one had a streaked/stained label so I'm not certain if there was a little extra-curricular oxidation thanks to UPS. Either way, the wine did drink well tonight but was tired after 2-3 hours. Good fruit up front, but darker than I recall for Levante fruit. This one had a blackberry backbone, but was herbal in the front, darker espresso notes in the middle, with a minty type finish. Interesting expression of this wine, but was perhaps a bit off.
