Colgin - Cabernet Sauvignon Herb Lamb Vineyard
At it's peak. Every part is so well balanced. Ripe blueberry, blackberry, raspberry and black cherry fruit. Notes of rhubarb, sweet tobacco, leather, graphite and cedar. Finely grained tannins perfectly integrated. LOng, delicious, flavorful finish. A beautiful wine.
Turley - Petite Syrah Rattlesnake Ridge
This seems just a bit past its prime but is still quite enjoyable. Blueberry and blackberry fruit. Rhubarb flavor adds pleasant tartness. Hints of white pepper and licorice. Good concentration with decent finish.
Ferrari-Carano - Cabernet Sauvignon Tremonte
Drinking very nicely. Ripe dark berry and blackberry liqueur. Notes of tobacco, licorice and cedar with slight chalkiness. Good length and flavor to the finish.
Spottswoode - Cabernet Sauvignon Estate
This is delicious. Ripe red berry fruit with creme de cassis. Baking spices, sweet tobacco and new leather saddle add complexity. Well-balanced, restrained on the more elegant side. Wonderful, pleasing finish with great length.
Reverie - Cabernet Sauvignon
Ripe grape and blueberry fruit. Framed by chalkiness. Fairly straight-forward but still enjoyable. Still some grip to the tannins but integrating nicely. Good, flavorful finish.
