Issue Issue 150

($275) Bright ruby-red. Crushed blueberry, licorice and graphite on the reticent nose. Extremely primary and deep, with a medicinal cast to the powerful but very backward flavors of crushed black fruits and minerals. There's little in the way of easy sweetness here, and the seriously tannic finish is tough going today. But this hugely rich if youthfully imploded wine gained dramatically in texture and fruit over the 48 hours I followed it and should evolve spectacularly in the cellar.

Utterly perfect is the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Lotus Vineyard. This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon was aged in 100% new French oak. Although limited in availability (220 cases produced), it is a wine of awesome intensity boasting an opaque purple color in addition to a brilliant floral-scented bouquet displaying aromas of cassis, black raspberries, black fruit, and forest floor. Multilayered with terrific intensity as well as a long, nearly 60-second finish, this flawlessly assembled wine is a brilliant example of Cabernet Sauvignon from the St. Helena hillsides. Give it 2-5 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 25 years. Bravo!

Drink Dates 2010-2022

A tremendous effort, dense and chewy, at points rustic but deeply concentrated, with a medley of dark berry fruits, loamy earth, mineral, sage and cedar, coming together nicely and maintaining a tight focus through the finish, where this ends with an espresso bean aftertaste.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
