    May 3, 2017 - I have an ongoing effort underway to explore some of the older wines in my cellar that have been just forgotten about over the years. This week, I went back to Fred Scherrer's 1999 Alexander Valley Cabernet. I actually have a few of these hanging around.
    Like the previous reviewer, upon initial opening and taste, I thought that after almost 18 years this Cab was definitely over the hill. Although not yet turned, it was tasting like just an over-age Cab that's been hanging around too long.
    I wasn't doing much this evening so I just let it sit for a while. To my surprise as the evening went on this wine opened up very nicely. I would say that it turned into a relatively smooth, yet lush and enjoyable Cabernet after about 1 hour. I'm going to make a concerted effort to drink more of these '99 Scherrer Cabs this summer.

    October 13, 2015 - What a surprise! I've had a couple of bottles of Fred Scherrer's 1999 Alexander Valley Cab stuck away in my cellar for years. It was literally lost. I opened one this evening. At first it smelled and tasted pretty over the hill. Not much going for it after 16 years.
    But I was in no rush as I was spending the evening catching up on emails. As the night went on, the wine opened and presented a nice structure with some fruit on the palette and a nice long finish.
    Who would have thunk that a 16 year old Alexander Valley Cab would be so enjoyable.

    January 5, 2010 - Very soft on the pallet, finish was a bit too light. The nose got better after a few minutes in the glass. It was a bit cool from the cellar at first. Very balanced, but won't get better.
