decanted 1 hr Med red; first impression was of ripe black and red cherries, red currants, later some dark chocolate came in; full body with integrated tannins and great balance, later there was less cherry and more pomegranate flavor- example of the changing nose/flavors over time. Very long soft finish, most Bdx would be proud to make this wine.
In my cellar since pre 06. Purple plum in color with no sign of maturity. Beautiful floral nose with a dose of cherry. Wonderful palate bursting with sweet red and black fruits. A nice sweetness. A wine that was made for my palate. No tannin. and very different than the 02 drunk side by side. Also a nice wine, but earthy and with some tannin to resolve. Drink the 01s now while waiting for the 02s to mature. An underpriced CA Cab for those who enjoy Napa wines as I do.
The Forman Cabernet opens with a robust nose of earth, leather, and cherry. Still drinking quite young, this medium to full bodied wine shows flavors of casis, cherry, vanilla, and both dark and red berries. The tannins have softened over time leaving a beautifully well balanced wine that is a pleasure to drink. The nose on this wine was particularly wonderful and complex starting out with more earth and leather that morphed over time to a more fruity bouquet. The wine paired wonderfully with Stinco d'Agnello
Deep dark red center, red rim with signs of age. Plums, blackberries, Bordeaux funk, a little minty, tapenade, pan grille, smoked bacon and a little toasty oak. Smooth, blueberries, blackberries, good tannins still, raspberry jam, touch of greenness, good length of mature fruit and supporting acidity. Excellent, leans towards the European but has the rounded fruit of a Napa wine. Drinking well now, but will likely last another 5+ years.
