A great wine. Great fruit but not a bomb. Well balanced with great mouth feel. Needs a serious decant though. Just kept getting better on day 2 & 3.

Way deep, concentrated and gorgeous. Pure creme de cassis, dark chocolate, graphite, and more. Out of magnum.

The new release has the richness of dark berry fruit you expect but with more balance via acid and tannin and also an intensity of aromatics not seen in the 2012

Big, but not too big. Rich dark fruit with a hint of crushed rock. Polished, good example of a Calisotga cab

Culty concentration, fruit and herby/spicy/oaky complexity. Really tasty and approachable.

Definitely a TRB wine - tonnes of fruit packed into a little bottle, but not showing a fruitbomb ripeness. Incredibly intense and concentrated - to be expected of that favored Calistoga fruit of his, reminding me a bit of Wallis Family Seraphim smacking you in the teeth with gritty tannin. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, with fresh aromas of blackberry and black plum, a bit of crushed rock, and bell pepper. The pallet is gritty and tight, exhibiting flavors of red apple skin, black currant, mocha, and an extreme grip to the finish. This wine either needs SEVERAL hours open to breath, or it needs 2 or 3 more years to relax before opening again.. excellent wine, but young.

Too young to drink but than when could you not enjoy a Thomas Brown made endeavor early and not drink in the potential

Definitely needs a decant! 2hrs served it pretty good...but could go longer. This one is a big boy and could use some cellar time; will hold my other bottles but enjoyed this one
