Moonracer Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

A special bottle to celebrate my lovely wife’s birthday. Really delicious, with excellent fruit that blossoms after about two hours in the decanter. — 10 days ago

One Point Five Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Pretty young Napa cab. Blackberry, espresso, chocolate, good acidity and chewy tannin. Maybe not quite a “value” cab at $100, but definitely delicious now with potential. — 12 days ago

@Ryan Mullins and @Jeff Loo are spot on. This needs 10 years. I double aerated back into bottle for 12 hour corked decant and after two hours open in glass this is still closed. You can still taste the potential though. There is a density and purity of fruit behind it that I’m excited to open up one day. Was still a great experience. 94 for now. Will hold remaining bottles for at least 5 years. Please yell at me if u see another post of this wine before then. — a month ago

Nice. I bought for years but got too pricy. Have a couple of cases in basement. I’m afraid to drink it.

Never buy on release,, I only buy on Auctions. Haven’t had a bad bottle yet,
Down to two 05, two 12’s & two 13’s plus one 06.
The 11 is great for the price if you can find it for $175.00 or less, one of the few 2011 which were actually good

Haven’t had enough Malbecs to make fair comparison, hoping the 13 has a better showing,

Should of let it settle from shipping. Did you decant it at least 45 minutes?

Probably & no, just tried a glass decant of 30 minutes then put the bottle back in the cooler to let it settle down for a night and try it as a day two wine
Wasn’t expecting the old world nose that it had,
What other Malbecs should I try as comparison ?

Pretty hard to be disappointed at $35. I like his Hope & Grace Malbec’s even better. I am going to contact them and see if I can talk them out of some library vintages.

Had the notes crossed on this one. This wine was past its prime. It ranked 9 out of 11 in our “97 Cali cab blind tasting. A little raspberry mid palate, but no finish whatsoever.

Enjoyable, wasn’t big and bold as was expecting. Would not have again at the Killeen price point — 6 days ago

Reserve Brassica Alba 301 Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Terrific wine from a good producer. Currants jump out of the glass and blue fruit rounds out the palette. Tannins are still firm. Wine opened up after 2 hours. — 17 days ago
