Anacapri Double Blind Tasting Dinner (Anacapri, Coral Gables): - Violet color with fast forming legs and aromas of blackberry, black currant and violet. It's in total harmony and has flavours of black currant and blackberry with a full body. Polished texture with a long finish - John IDed as Cali CS 1991 or 1992(Close).His WOTN. Mark's wine(me).
Opened after seeing several notes that this was beginning to decline. The color was ruby red with some light orange at the rim. This wine had an explosive nose of cedar, flowers, cassis, mint, and smoke. The palate was surprisingly youthful with cassis, cedar, smoke, and herbal notes. Structurally, the acidity is perfectly balanced with dense fruit in the mid-palate. The tannins are fully resolved in this full-bodied wine, but it does not come across as soft. There is very good length on the clean, fruit-packed finished. Overall, this was an excellent bottle with all of the hallmarks of one of the greatest California cabernet sauvignon vineyards.
