@Delectable Wine : This is the Gemstone Vineyard Heritage Selection Cabernet. I didn’t see it in the database.

Wonderful Gemstone tasting last night, and this was my WOTN. Perfect example of TRB’s style with an absolutely intoxicating nose of sweet red and black fruit. Some sandalwood too. Velvet like texture on the palate showing soft, bruised, ripe blackberry, bing cherry and vanilla tobacco. Fig and nutmeg. Finish goes on and on. Fantastic!

Gemstone tasting graciously arranged by Al Buis. Tasted from Magnum. This was a rather awesome piece of Gemstone history opened tonight. In Magnum, it seems as though this bottle has done very little aging. It is a very powerful wine that has lost the sweeter front characteristics that the current releases had, which were tasted as well tonight. But the maturity of the black fruit shines through. Lots of chocolate on the middle of this wine. I was getting some sort of a dried herb and nutty component towards the Finish. This one is perfectly balanced. Ready to go!

This wine needs time but is showing beautiful dark fruit now. Oak is integrating nicely, I’m going hands off for a couple years mostly because this seems to have a great upside.
