drank after 1975 St Emilion.
Initially hard to evaluate, so dramatically different. Really opened up after an hour or so. Great finish.

Just excellent. The best sauv blanc I've ever had. Great body and depth. Very nice finish.

Waited too long, well past it's time. Still a good overall classy wine but definitely not what it could have been.

Day 1: Open half hour before dinner. Had with ribeye and spinach. Good deep purple color. Nice nose with some spice but little fruit. Best cab I've had in a long while. Would have drunk well without the meal as well. Super finish. Half bottle left. Will try again tomorrow.
Day 2: Just ok, not the same wine. Lost most of it's balance. Should have drunk it all last night. Bummer.

Nice bottle, but didn't live up to the current price tag the winery has it at which is over $100

Did not live up to expectations. Relatively weak wine, not much of a finish. I was hoping for so much more being the second wine of Cos and in a good year.

Wonderful nose. Full bodied wine. Still quite tannic. I would definitely try this again.

Not much of a nose, couldn't get an sense of fruit or anything like that; seemed rather earthy and smelled of tannin. Tasted much better, not very tannic at all dispite the smell. Fruit was definitely present. Nice wine, good value, probably worth getting again. whish the nose was better.

Difficult to describe. Stong, but not alot of body or depth. Seems very young, but not fruity. Maybe needed more time to mellow? I would not try again.

Nice bottle. Dark color. Smooth, even wine. Not overly fruity, a bit earthy/mineraly. Very pleaseant, not at all overpowered by thai food pairing. Worth buying again.

I decanted for about an hour and it was still very blah but it opened up alot more after a couple of hours. Maybe I liked it more toward the end because I drank the most of the bottle by myself. Not much body for 45% cab. It was cheap and worth trying but probably wouldn't buy it again.
