Community Tasting Notes 5

    August 30, 2019 - Big and ripe and juicy and lush. Very modern, very napa. Strength of 2013 in terms of flavor and body, yet i found structure and acid to be lacking. BlackBerry, blackcurrant, raspberry liqueur, vanilla, and cinnamon and baking spices. Would be very popular with a napa centric crowd, but perhaps just not my favorite style.

    August 14, 2019 - First time with their 2013 Cab. 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot for this vintage. Definitely a darker complexion than the 2014’s I’ve had and a bit tight at the moment. Give this lots of air. Dark fruits/cherries, baking spice, clay and cedar on the nose. The palate carries the dark cherry, dried spices, and wood characteristics with some big tannins. Fascinating the differences between this and the 2014’s.

    June 2, 2019 - Five hour decant. Very deep dark magenta color. Maple donut and black cherry on the fruit forward nose. Dry, velvety palate, with fine mouth filling acidity. Full tannins on the medium long finish.

    October 24, 2016 - MW Institute 2013 American Cabernet Tasting, nose of black cherry, black currants, same on the palate, big body, large amount of soft tannins overwhelm the fruit, nice tasting, medium finish.

    October 24, 2016 - Institute of Masters of Wine - 2013 Cabernet Walk-Around Tasting (Hyatt, San Francisco): Big, bold wine. Ripe and juicy. Not my style, but this seems well-made.
