At 10 years of age, I think this one is doing well. Probably a couple of years away from the top but overall excellent structure. Compared to a 13, this cork was a bit darker as you would expect. Darker fruit profile on the nose and palate as well. Blackberry, pie spice, dark chocolate, herbal. Finishes with a hint of cola. Tannins have started to resolve. All in all this wine has come along nicely. A bit different than the 13 that it was consumed alongside, but both wines have excellent structure and an excellent pedigree! — 5 days ago
Love the Cab Franc here. Blackberries and oak with a hint of caramel on the nose. Lots of fruit but round with some earthy flavors as well. Looooooong finish. Summary: Pure deliciousness. — 2 days ago
Not ready to go yet. Has all the bones and has great structure, but has a lot of astringency on the finish. Black, purple and blue fruits. Finishes with stiff oak tannin but had a decent amount of black pepper spice on the finish as well. This wine was very pleasant to drink, and by the time I got around to it I think that it had been open for about 3 hours or so which definitely did help. Still, I think the best years of this wine are at least 4-5 years ahead, and think this one will drink well for 10-15 years. — 14 days ago
So impressed with this new find of ours. Whether it’s the regular cab, or the Wight designation, they are both excellent value. This wine presents the cabernet varietal, perfectly, without the viscosity and exuberance that some producers seek.
The nose displays freshly cut herbs and barrel toast. The palate presents cinnamon, overripe cherries, coffee, and a wisp of blueberries. This is Day 3 since opening, so it has continued to evolve. Finishes with a long, mellow sweetness. Tannins are ripe and perfectly balanced. — 18 days ago
I’m not usually a cab fan but this one is hard to resist. Deep garnet color; lots of legs and a big fruity flavor. — 6 days ago
