Community Tasting Notes (3) Avg Score: 88.7 points

  • Like the last bottle, thirty minutes certainly benefited the wine, but it really didn’t come into it’s own until the second day. A marked improvement over day one. The nose was a little subdued with hints of dark cherry and peppery spice. Full, rounded and mellow in the mouth, with a kirsch like finish that is short to medium in length. I had thought the wine still a bit harsh and closed on the first day, but really liked it on day two. That said, I think this is as good as it gets. The fruit was degraded somewhat with soft tannins, so I don’t see this going anywhere but down.

  • first i've drank any old cadence... this bottle has clearly peaked, but remains a very pleasant drink. opened up over course of dinner, tasting better after 30min. or so - probably would have benefited by decanting.

  • Tasting note from memory. Thirty minutes seemed to benefit this wine which was drinking great at the one hour mark. I’ve had some hit-miss older Cadence wines, but was surprised that hits came together, with nice resolved tannins on the finish, after an hour.
