A family reserve 2004 Cabernet. What a treat from the Spoto Family Library! Purplish red ruby color. The nose has an initial cream brûlée scent, then bursts with black fruit, green veggie, earthy spices. Taste—definite blackberry fruit, tobacco smoke , chocolate and spices linger. Medium, but sweet tannins and velvety smooth in the mouth with a long finish. Could age more as the overall taste is still fresh for being 15 years old. — 11 days ago
Luv the nose—a burst of sweet deep cherry chocolate and pine licorice spice. Rich, pure and beautiful dark purple-garnet color. Explodes with blue and blackberry fruit—smoky, tar and coffee-chocolate linger. Tannins are present but smooth. This can definitely age another 10 years. Luscious and layered. A must try! — 19 days ago
From the Cliff Lede Vineyard — luscious and layered. Decanted for an hour, as well as double decanted. Will open nicely: now enjoying blue and black fruit, floral and cassis on the nose. Bursts of blackberry fruit, cassis and chocolate, with dry tannins, smoke and pencil lead on the finish. Long finish at that—can’t wait to see how it opens throughout the evening. Luv it! — a month ago
