What a great bottle of wine! This is what I look for in an aged cab. Beautiful sour cherry & high toned red fruits, intrated spicy mature oak throwing notes of green olives and jalapeno's, tannins still kickin on the back end but very integrated. Slight mint and earth too. Great bottle.
TN from memory. Last bottle, found hidden. Fruit seemed a bit ripe and almost port-y at first. Decanted for an hour. Very nice, mature cab. Some leather, red currants, tannins nearly completely resolved. It held up for a few hours in the decanter until it was drained. If I had more I would drink in the near term.
TWATS V; 8/8/2008-8/9/2008 (Château D' Stearns): Perfect color. Now famous TWATSA quote - “Has legs like a Bulgarian ladies shot putter & smells like Cat pee strained through her g string.” Nose of a Pig styie, leather. Dark deep finish, lingering. Room to grow. OK. Bold, old. Lemon Zest late on the great finish. Gab smacking. Late 90’s was the guess. Tim – Aussie.
Performed well despite simple mid range Cab from 91. Two nights later left out uncorked still holding together amazingly. Still deep stewed fruits. Nice finish, damn. This is good.
