Community Tasting Notes (3) Avg Score: 94.3 points

  • I'm not going to do a big old note on this one because it might be slightly flawed, not sure. This is the only bottle of this I have ever tasted and after 3 tastes via Coravin I come to the same conclusion that it's either too old or it has a little funk a-la-Bordeaux (esp in the nose).

    It just doesn't smell, taste or finish like a typical Schrader. It's not bad, just not very inspiring. The 93 points is a little generous.

    The nose has more funk than fruit, then the fruit tries to burst through on the palate only to disappear beneath the funky structure in the finish. It's a well-made wine but perhaps well past its prime. Drink it up if you have it.

  • Cab's Seventh of April Club dinner on 9/11/12: This was my penultimate WOTN. It had been opened and decanted for 3 hours prior to drinking. Tastes of macerated cherries. A forever finish that goes on and on and on. It coats the whole mouth (even the roof). Awesome!

  • No notes on this yet? Deep ruby with much of the tannin resolved. Oak is fully integrated. Classic Cabernet flavors with a chewy quality that bodes well for further aging, but I am not sure it will get better. Even the dregs were refined and polished. Very nice.
