Wow is initial impression! Massive tannin structure that opened after 1 hour in the glass. Beautifull black fruit component , great mouth feel. Probably the wine of the night, even with the Aubert and J Rochioli Pinots and the Maya 92... I give this a Commanding 98+ Rating in my book! Thanks Mr Larry!

I don't drink too much Cab but wow. Not in your face, just a seamless wine across the board.

Dark currant black raspberry fruit mint and herbs still a bit youthful. Deep and rich fruit on the tongue showing good concentration and nice length. Still a baby. Finish most excellent

Apparently it's a Schrader kind of night... very promising head ache tomorrow!

WOW 😲
I didn’t know this was aging away in Cellar...
RP gave it 97 Points many years ago, now 10 years after Vintage date of 2008; maybe a little past peak. Fantastic nose 👃 & Fabulous texture, deep concentration, integrated Rutherford tannins. Drink em’ soon!
How’s that for snobby! Cheers!

Decanted 3 hours. With a medium rare beef tenderloin. Dark purple color. Tons of violet and sweet red fruit perfume and anise - brighter nose than the color. In the mouthful lots of sweet black licorice with red cherry fruit. Long finish with soft tannins. This can age easily another 5-10 and will be interesting to see what secondary flavors come out and how much fruit is retained. Very very CA to me - not a Bordeaux or super Tuscan. Excellent

Really good but expected more. Cardinale and VHR were better

Wow. This is Coltrane. A massive wine with sheets of flavors pouring through. Blackberry and cassis nose with cedar and spice. Palate mirrors with deep fruit, length and grip, yet smooth. The cedar/spice/caramel finish is stunning.
