Top Notes For
Sipping Fine Wine

Blend of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon & 4% Petit Verdot, deep Ruby with aromas of red fruits, espresso, cedar and sweet notes. On the palate flavors of black raspberry, strawberry and ripe black cherry with notes of cacao, vanilla and dried herbs. Fine rich tannins, long finish ending with fruit, cacao, spice and oaky earthy mineral notes.

Spectacular wine. Rich but balanced with layers of flavor that go on forever. Aired for two hours and opened beautifully.

In the battle of 2016s, not very extensive, this edged the Shafer if just barely.

Incredible. Black cherry, licorice, coffee, dark chocolate, and spice. The only bad thing is the bottles are so honking big, it barely fits in my fridge.

Trashed label both front and back, but the juice is Rutherford through-and-through nonetheless. Bought this at a local wine sale on a whim with mild concerns due to the visible condition of the bottle. Thankfully no flaws with the wine are present 👍🏻 On the nose rustic cherries, blackberries, and plums with eucalyptus, sage, and dust providing a lovely backdrop. On the palate this expression errs on a quasi-voluptuous side with a near-plush mouthfeel and a developing array of blackberry cobbler, holiday spices, worn leather, and tilled earth.

Community Question: Have any of the Premium Subscribers noticed an issue with their recently monthly renewal? I was charged for my renewal like normal but Delectable is not showing me as Premium. Whenever I try and re-subscribe it says I’m Premium already (which isn’t true). I’ve reached out to Support twice and they’re MIA. In light of both this strange occurrence and the influx of what I consider to be spam users on Delectable, I have an eyebrow raised 🧐

This is lovely. There’s a beautiful promise of elegance on the nose with cherries and dusty rocks that delivers on the palate. Full body, cherry, berry, chocolate, vanilla, and ends with Rutherford dusty tannin.
I get this is a 2016, but I think ready for extreme enjoyment now. I’m going to get more so I don’t feel bad that I’m drinking early! 😜. I’ll save a bunch for the long haul. 95-96
