Community Tasting Note

  • Yack Man Likes this wine: 97 points

    November 19, 2017 - The wine of the night. Much like before but I did notice some acidity beginning to show, however the wine got better and better as the evening progressed. Smooth red and black berry fruits, cream de cassis on the palate that continued to expand with time. Real nice depth and flavors with ample tannins. 97 Points tonight and my mind is made up, I grab a few more while there's some available. I think that there are better days ahead for this wine.

  • Yack Man commented:

    11/21/17, 8:27 AM - I really like them both TXRTW, but the Weitz shows more debth and nuance than does the Fortuna. I would suggest since you tried them both if you haven’t already. Is the Weitz worth another $65 more? Only you can answer that. I hold more of the Beckstoffers and Fortuna then I do the Weitz. If you enjoy big yet superbly constructed Napa Valley Cabernet, you will enjoy Carter Cellars. I look forward to your future notes on the 2015 lineup at Carter Cellars.
