May be a bit past its prime, some butter undertones

Likely waited too long to open this. Lots to like, but the aroma was a bit too strong and acidic, and while the body was still full and it had a long finish, the flavor was also a bit unbalanced on the acidic side.

Very nice up front citrus fruit flavors and a lot of sugar. Somewhat single note finish but very enjoyable.

Velvety smooth, buttery flavor and pronounced oak flavors even after all this time. Very, very nice!

Nice flavor, quite a bit of alcohol, and some disagreement amongst my friends on whether it has more than just the initial dark berry and pepper flavors. I thought it was a bit one note but my friends thought it had a nice lingering flavor beyond the alcohol.

Ok dinner wine, with upfront pepper notes, but a somewhat one note taste without many layers and with a very short finish.

Somewhat overpowering and sharp when first opened, but the tannins mellow out if given time. Still a very full bodied cab best consumed with food, and flavorful food at that.

Very good white, pairs nicely with cheese and pasta, strong up front acid and flowery notes, maybe not as much balance and a little too much acid in the finish.

Sweeter than I expected, with lots of up front citrus and some tannins, but no lasting depth. The structure dies off too quickly. I likely tasted it too young as well.
