Forman’s 2015 has really shut down, which is is so atypical for this vintage. I won’t be opening another bottle anytime soon. What a wine. So pure, so classic and so gorgeous...Tasted during our St. Helena & Conn Valley Vinous Learn masterclass. 96+

Meh. Overrated given the price. I expected a lot more. Perhaps it's not ready for prime time? Have one more. Will hold for a while.

The last wine was 2016. This is ‘15 and very intense rich dark fruit. The tasting and cave experience is excellent. Hard to get in. We carry at Capitol Cellars so they invited us in. Very good experience 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Difficult year but wonderful effort. Lush red fruit flavor. With lingering mid pallet flavors. A touch of minerality. Real deal🍷

A nice juicy Cali cab. Lots of dark fruit and berry nose. Lots of time left on this one.
