Many of the really heavy '13s need either more time in bottle or more decant, like 3+ hours right now. The '15s are really hit or miss right now but all 4 vintages were very, very good.

    1/29/2020 5:13:00 AM - BL.....I have a few of the '16s. Have not tried yet, as it seems they might need a few years to hit their peak from what some CT'ers have said?

    9/2/2019 5:53:00 AM - I am starting to post TNs this week as a cold and 2 operations on my wife have taken priority over wine and TN. Cask 23 in my opinion requires more time due to it's complexity, closed, brooding fruit, and Stag's Leap Fruit, than most other Napa Cabernets. I opened 2 Cask 23 recently and hope you enjoy the notes.

    8/28/2019 5:08:00 AM - Be.Lee Thanks for becoming a Fan of my Tasting Notes. You can buy older wine at Winebid.com or BrentwoodWine.com a single bottle at a time and save the newer releases in your cellar. My opinion: Chardonnay and Pinot Noir found in the Russian River area and parts of Sonoma and usually need 5 years of age. Pichon Lalande and other classified Bordeaux usually show best at the 20 to 30 year mark. Grand Cru Burgundy shows best at the 20 to 30 year mark. Premiere Cru Burgundy are best after 5 to 9 years in the cellar. Cabernet Sauvignon are best at the 7 to 10 year mark but Cask 23 takes 19 to 35 years to show. Enjoy.
