A little too sweet for my taste. I like the Myriad Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley better.

2013 will need some cellar time. I will give it a year or so while I drink the 2012's

Disappointing to say the least. Don't know if it's in a dumb phase or just not aging well.

One of the smoothest TRB wines I have had lately. Not as big as the 2013. A very nice wine and can drink now. Not sure how this vintage will age but I like it.

This wine has tightened up since release and needs several more years to come around.

Smooth as silk but the finish is a little short for this pedigree of wine at this early stage.

Just arrived today and could not resist the temptation - This is quite stylish, with its lush, round, plush textures, black and blue fruits. Approachable now but it's only going to get better with age.

Wow what a wine - Woodbridge is correct in his release email and I quote "The wine is legend and will only get better for decades in the bottle, however it will blow your left you know what off right now."

Needs a long decant or wait a few more years.

Tasted with a Coravin with high expectations considering the price - big tannin at this stage and needs at least 4 to 5 more years in the cellar - I sure hope this gets better with age because I am sure disappointed with it at this early stage so I will hold off rating now.

Just entering drinking window and it's starting to add some complexity - not sure I can hold on to my remaining bottles much longer because it's hard to resist now

Nothing special at this early age. I hope it improves with more time because I was disappointed after reading some of the other reviews.

Had a 2006 thru 2011 vertical today and the 2007 and the 2010 were my favorites. The 2009 seems a bit tight now and still needs more time in the cellar but if you want to try now give it a couple hours in the decanter.

Just arrived and had to try it. Way too young but has good potential 93 to 94 points now. Will try to wait 2 to 3 more years before opening the next bottle.

Just arrived and had to try it with Coravin. My first time tasting an Amoenus. If you like the redder fruit style cabs then this is a wonderful wine. Well balanced and smooth. TRB did a great job with this wine, I just prefer cabs that are black fruit driven, so I liked the Materium better.

Just arrived and I had to try it and WOW. TRB has amazed me again. Black fruits, well balanced, long finish, and smooth as silk on the palate. From a 375ml. I can hardly wait to see how this wine matures over the years. Just hope I can manage to hold on to at least one bottle until maturity. Has potential for several more points with cellar time.

2010 is a nice wine from Col Solare. It will need 5 to 6 more years with a decade or 2 of life ahead of it

Way early but just had to try it. Needs several years in cellar to add some secondary flavors. Super soft on the palate. I look forward to following this wine over the years and can see 1 or 2 more points added to my score.

Wow what perfume on the nose. Loved this elegant silky smooth Cabernet Sauvignon. Could see this a point or so higher in a few years.

I did not like this wine at all. It's well made just not my thing. I prefer the syrah over the grenache.

Killer nose on this with silky soft tannins. I can see this gaining 2 or 3 more points with 5 to 8 more years. I would have gone a point or 2 higher if the finish were a little longer.

I got the same profile JAXPAJ talked about on 5/15/2013 - "Dusty tannins, dark fruit, fine cigar, and the finish was short with watery edges"

Decanted for 2 hours. What a nice surprise, layered, smooth, silky, and nice finish. From first sip you get some WOW factor.
