Community Tasting Note

  • vinojones wrote: 94 points

    December 24, 2019 - With all respect to the 2010 review of 1991 Napa cabs by JG my experience with this bottle has been totally different 9 yrs later.
    Cork pulled for 1 hr then poured. Color ruby edge to the rim no bricking; nose a little funky, red berries, brambles; a little simple, dried red fruits, med finish, later was very much like a 30yr Graves, complex tertiary herbaceous/ mineral notes; at 2+ hrs the wine woke up, dark chocolate on the nose, young red plum flavors and a smooth long finish, complex; very smooth long plummy finish. Tasted 15 yrs younger than it is, (based on my 40+ yrs of drinking Napa Cabs)
