Community Tasting Note

  • Tri Wine wrote: (97 points)

    December 9, 2012 - Wow. What a wonderful wine. Decanted 4 hours and entered into a blind tasting of 20+ (BIG) wines last night. It finished a very close 3rd and was many folks' number 1 choice. This is a massive, complex cab with a whole lot going on. The nose is smething to behold, and the depth of the fruits on the mid-palate is impressive. . That's followed by a 60+ second finish that goes on and on. Another 5-10 years and this one would've been a 98-99. That said, I've only ranked a very smnall handful (literally) of wines over 95 pts....wish I had more than one of these left!
