Community Tasting Note

  • p2002 wrote: flawed

    March 14, 2014 - Thin, flat, and lifeless, a subtle not-pleasant underlying cherry-candy aftertaste, and without much improvement on day two. I had opened a bottle about a year prior, this not as I remember my first bottle. It is an ok wine given the QPR, but not the best showing by CH.
    (edit) I believe this bottle to be flawed. I opened my last bottle of this lot and found this fresh opening to be much more 'cab' like; better body (though still thin), black berry and herbaceous. Still, not the best expression of a NV cab in my (very limited) experience. Not a wine I can recommend to hold onto for the cellar, best to drink now. To be fair, I bought this as a drink now wine - I got just what I asked for.

    5/3/14, 5:03 PM - Worth noting: This was one bottle out of ten that was flawed the others were all of fair quality. Further, I contacted CHW about this bottle, and without hesitation was a offered a replacement CS of my choosing as this lot was no longer stocked. Great customer service at CH. I am finding more and more CH is a brand in the wine-world that laity (like myself) can readily embrace.
