This was really not ready to drink as it seemed to lack that nice punch that you get from Napa Cabs. I will leave the other bottles I have of this alone for awile.

I really liked this SB. again using the descriptor that says it's as if I was sucking on a stone flavored with grapefruit and grass.

For a Beckstoffer To Kalon it was a bit weak. I was looking for more acidity or just bolder fruit flavors. Still quaffable.

Incredible smoothness on this impeccably made Paul Hobbs produced Cab. Wish I had more as this went well with the beef bourgoignon that i served.

A lovely classically styled Cab with dark fruit flavors from start to finish. Wish I had more as this was one of the best of the night.

Just drinking beautifully. Lots of fruit still holding on despite it's age. Some cassis and cedar notes present. Tannins are smoothed out and such a wonderful long finish.

Drank with friends and everyone loved it. A lovely Malbec from the land of milk and honey. Didn't taste any of that in this quaffable red.

A proven team of Pinot makers does it again with this 2010 offering. Rich flavors are present throughout. Terroir of Russian River evident as well.

Fountain pen ink in this effort by Thomas Rivers Brown. It coats the glass and has a slight peppery mid palate.There was a hint of something vegetal on the finish.

Beautiful wine with a bit of sage and tobacco on the mid palate. Finish was long and the tannins were well integrated.

- Garnet color and aromas of strawberry. It's balanced. Smooth texture with a medium finish - Excellent Barolo. Like most aged wines it needed some time in decanter to really show it's stuffing. A real pleasing finish and showed great elegance.

Decanted for several hours and it was just singing. A truly great effort and this CDP is at the top of it's class. La Crau is great and I highly recommend it.

I just loved this Brunello. Everyone did as it opened up rather quickly which was refreshing after having decanted others only to find that it really didn't help much. Honestly this wine was superb as it had great complexity and all different flavors going on.
