Community Tasting Notes (17) Avg Score: 95.0 points

  • Popped, decanted and poured. Needs about 20-30 minutes to peak but opens noticeably in 5-10.

  • A little closed down with very grippy tannins. You can taste the potential for those big scores, but it's not there right now. Complex nose with great feel on the palate, this just needs time to develop.

  • Had this wine when it was first bottled at the winery and thought it was outstanding so I bought two cases. Later I learnt RP gave it 98, which surprised me as we have different tastes.

    At this point this wine is drinking beautifully as a pop and pour (craving) although it improves with aeration. I get both youthful favors (red fruit, pomegranate seeds, tight tannins in the finish) and mature favors (forest floor, cigar leaf) amid the base of dark fruits, some wet stone, oak and crushed limestone.

    I feel like this wine won't really drink well all the way until 2030, but boy it sure drinks well now.

  • A classic, elegant expression for 2010. Dark color of dark purple amethyst, substantial legs, firm and structured with elegance, finesse, and smooth tannins. Not overly flush or a big fruit driven cab, but medium to full bodied and drink well now, but destine to improve with bottle time. This is a cab that in not necessarily my preference, but I like this Cab and I can appreciate the high scores that this wine gets on CT and from the noted wine critics. Parker and Galloni give this Cab 98 points and The Wine Spectator gives it a score of 92 Points. Where I typically would be more inline with Parker view, I agree more with Wine Spectator on this one. I like this wine and it will be fascinating to experience the evolvement of this 2010 Forman as I have a few bottles of this wine on my wine rack to enjoy over the years.
