Williams Selyem - Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast
I am a big WS fan, but this one was just "OK". Tasted like any other mid priced Pinot. Will try again in a few years.
Shafer - Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select
This was truly a fantastic wine. Soft and supple. Decanted for 2 hours. Very soft on the palate, leather like. Powerful aromas abound. I will be buying many more bottles. Wow!
Cakebread - Cabernet Sauvignon Vine Hill Ranch
Perhaps due to improper storage, the cork crumbled on its way out.... Decanted for a long 2 hours, but the wine was tightly wound and would not open up. Very disappointing. Could not taste the fruit in this one.
Rosy in color. Medium rim variation. Fast legs. Tar, Burnt Match, Stoniness. Nutmeg. Medium bodied. Full bodied. Leathery texture. Medium finish. The last of 3 bottles that I had purchased, all 3 had issues with broken corks. This is a pretty bad wine, and I will not be buying anymore so-so wines, even from a great year like 1982. Rarely have I wasted wine, and we could not even consume the entire bottle.
