  • Un Cabernet Californien qui ne s’impose pas en lourdeur malgré sa puissance. Il impressionne par son intensité avec ses arômes de mûre, de tabac, de fleurs et de cèdre. En bouche on se laisse séduire par ses tannins fins, la souplesse et la texture velouté de ce beau vin. Des saveurs de cerise amère et ce cacao sont en évidence dans ce californien au beau potentiel de garde.

  • Tasting with Duncan Meyers of Arnot Roberts (Ordinaire): My favorite of a Fellom Ranch '09-'10-'11 vertical, this warm, dark, accessible, and just-perfectly-ripened wine introduces itself with a stunning bouquet of perfectly ripened berries and dark chocolate and then offers an unstoppable palate of deep, dark, persistent cabernet notes with inviting structure and plenty of backbone. Long, long sophisticated finish. Drink now through at least 2020.

  • Magenta colored, not quite opaque. Exceedingly focused and powerful pencil-scented nose, with some mixed dark fruits lurking in the background. Medium-bodied, though a bit thick for its restrained flavor profile. Strikingly little fruit on the palate. Not particularly tannic but a nudge sour. Persistent finish. I can't believe this is a New World wine--it tastes like a slightly more extracted version of a lower-classed Bordeaux, or a 2nd/3rd growth from a rather modest vintage.

  • Jesus, this is fabulous. Just about as delicious as Cabernet can be, and textbook, cassis and plum and cedar and herbs and loads and loads of graphite. So complex - I'm barely scratching the surface in describing whats going on with this wine. Medium bodied, but insanely concentrated. Remarkably fresh acid, with a fair bit of structure but quite drinkable alongside rich Passover food. Best young cab I've ever had. Worth every one of the (many) pennies this cost. Can't believe how good this is.

  • Sitting right down into a beautiful place. A core of "sweet" fruit but a pull of minerality backed by acidity. Finish is elegant and long, very youthful.
