Dark raspberry red color. Initially on the nose bing cherry and saddle leather. Over time darker fruits emerge. The wine has good acidity and structure to go along with blackberries and dark cherries on the palate. Finish is smooth with a tart ending.
Sampled 11/22/11. Beautiful overripe black cherry notes appear up front but are largely swallowed up by weeds at mid palate. And by the finish the wine continues its downward trend toward some astringent notes. Definitely not a great year for Forman Cab.
- Garnet color with slow forming legs and aromas of black currant, chocolate, black pepper and vanilla. It's balanced and has flavours of cherry, chocolate and black currant with a medium/full body. Satin-Like texture with a long finish - Beautiful ruby color with only slight fading at edge. Bouquet is full of gorgeous dark fruit like plums and black currant, with notes of chocolate and spice/black pepper. The mouthfeel is a medium to full bodied wine with sweet, dark cassis fruit, a slight hotness, and a finish that lasts 30+ seconds. The tannins are pleasantly "dusty" and the finish is overall soft and lush. A gorgeous effort that should go 3-4 more years. I love Forman!
