  • On the lean side, very little overt fruit. Needs some decanting to show what it has.

  • Night 1 - PnP. Very thin and acidic with no fruit and non-existent finish. Only drank 1/2 glass. Corked bottle to revisit next day hoping for improvement. If ranking on night 1, would have given a 78.

    Night 2 - Definitely better than night 1. Fleshed out some although no complexity and the finish is very short. Some eucalyptus and cassis on the palate.

    Drink up - don't think this is getting any better. Not a great experience for my first Cadence after reading so many great things about them. I think this wine is past its prime. Will try some other wines and hope for better.

  • Was very excited to try this as I have always heard great things about Cadence wines but this wine is on the downhill slide as the fruit is almost non existent. All of the other elements of a good wine are present, hope my remaining bottles are better. Drink now!

  • Medium ruby, lighter in color than I anticipated. Cherry and baking spices on the nose. Notes of cherry, plum, baking spices and hints of vanilla, cedar, leather and brine. Agree with prior tasters that this needs a modest decant or a bit of time in the glass to open up. Very nice.

  • Decanted a little longer than previous bottle, about two hours this time; the longer decant definitely helped, this wine was ready from the start. Medium ruby in color, cherry and spice on the nose and in the mouth, tannins rounded and smooth; medium bodied with a medium finish. This bottle seemed to be lacking the complexity of the previous bottle. 4+12+16+8=90
