I had my last bottle of the '08 vintage. There has been some variation. But has varied from really good to fantastic. This last bottle was just that - absolutely the finest that I can remember. I had a 20 year old bottle of Varozza Cab a few days before which I really enjoyed. But compared to Temple, it wasn't even close. I would love to be able to just go to the store and buy a wine of this caliber, but it's not so simple.
30 minute decant; similar to my last tn of 2 years ago though the tannins are more integrated than before and the flavor profile somewhat subdued a bit. Either way, still an excellent Cali cab for a good price.
