Last of the 750s, with a mag still in the rack. What a great wine this has been and continues to be. This is not done at all. It is plush and in its prime. Cherry cola, raspberry, anise, mushrooms, and softened tannins. I think the magnum will hold another 2-4 years easily.
Wow! What a beautiful wine. Whoever put 2014 on this as a top end needs to stop drinking Cabs two years old. This wine is beautiful and still developing. Fruit is still looming large with a nice backbone that actually still develops better over an hour after popping.
For a 2007 Ca Pinot Noir, I was a bit disappointed. There was that telltale fruitiness on the nose, but it was a bit overwhelmed by an alcohol nose that carried through to the palate. I was expecting red fruit lushness, but I got a rough, woody taste dominating. No, the wine was not corked or tainted, but it did taste very tight. Maybe I should have decanted a couple hours in advance?
