(got it from Stillman a couple of weeks ago to let it rest, and unlike some, didn't blab early about it!).
Tonight's report: YUM!
78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Cabernet Franc, 11% Petite Sirah.
2 for $59 plus $5 shipping. So $32.50 for 2, $31.25 for 4, or $30.83 for 6 bottles.
American Wine Society score: 17 (Excellent)
Parker Wine Rating scale score: 88 (Very Good)
Using a Riedel Vitis Cabernet glass for tasting. Bottle has been open over 2 hours. Also tasted using a Travel Vinturi.
Tasted first on it's own, and then with a nice, juicy Porterhouse steak. Nom, nom, nom!
It is a deep velvet ruby, with thick, prominent drip legs. Not much heat on the nose or tongue.
Similar to the Woot write up, I got a nose of blackberry, black currants, cherry, and some plum, with hints of earth and cedar; not too many tannins, so very drinkable right away.
The mouth shows moderate acidity and smoothness. The palate has a long finish with the same elements as the nose with dried cherries and plum dominant.
Worked very well with the porterhouse.
Will try to post more after another 1 or 2 hours tonight. Still sipping it.
Like Stillman says, I will try one now, and one in 3 years.
