Deep dark red center, red rim with signs of age. Sweet, creamy, brambles, black currants, black cherry jam, light stalkiness, touch of cola. Smooth, rich but restrained, blackberries and red currants, dust, pyrazine, long herby curranty finish. Drinking very well now, excellent mountain cab.
Deep dark center, red rim with surprisingly little signs of age. Sweet cassis, a little toasty, dried plums, a bright cherry note. Smooth and complex, blackberries and blackcurrant, some plums, good tannin and acidity, mouth coating rich fruit, some blood and iron, vinous, a little green, dried undergrowth, long taut finish. Great Forman cab. Mixture of new and old world. Drinking well now, but has the legs for a few more years.
The last of three bottles bought at the winery a few years back. Forman is a California cult wine without the cult prices. This bottle was classic. Deep dark cherry bouquet. Round and supple. A hint of flat cola on the finish. Could drink well another 3-5 years.
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.
