Community Tasting Notes (30) Avg Score: 90.4 points

  • Tasting 3 Forman Cabernet Sauvignons. Nose of dark fruit, black cherry, cassis, and smoke, more of the same on the palate, medium body, smooth, almost elegant, not quite equal to its peers tonight, long, finish. My #3.

  • From Magnum. Took 30 minutes to blow off some funk and age. Even in magnum at end of its peak drinking window. Nice black fruits but some red fruits as well, eucalyptus from start through finish with hints of green peppers as well.

  • After reading the previous notes I was concerned this might be fading and initial impressions agreed with the previous notes. However all this wine needs is some air. After an hour in the decanter it was singing, after 2 hours it had unwound and the acidity was framing the deep flavors of cassis and dark berry, tobacco and black olives with a definite undertone of loamy earth. Very long with all the flavors interweaving and fading away together after a good minute. Certainly a style more akin to a ripe vintage Bordeaux than the cabs from Napa today, but has more fruit than most 24 year old Bordeaux. Best of both worlds.

  • Ok. Nothing amazing. Seemed a bit over the hill.

  • Plum and black cherry aromas with some woodsy spice and liqueur hints. Mostly fresh flavors with some faint earthy hints, then spice hints on finish, more once open an hour+. Moderate length, power and intensity, but good overall balance. I would expect this should continue to drink well for at least 5 years, probably 10, but don't see it improving from here.
