Wine Details

Inky dark red with a rich ruby rim, this wine shows floral notes of violets and fruit aromas including blackberry, cherry, and blueberries. The bouquet presents hints of sage and spice. Bold on the mid-palate, the front fruit flavors highlight blueberries, currants, and blackberries with some floral notes, including rose petals. The long and supple finish is rich with fine-grained tannins and a dynamic acidity.

8 yrs in the bottle: looking and tasting great! Lot 604 has really let me jonesing for the next great cab so I rustled through two boxes of CH wines (from a 2010 order ... haha! who the hell can wait that long?) and pulled out Lot 189! .. my second last bottle : ( ... No matter, pulled the cork and drank hoping for instant gratification ... I was not disappointed! Paired it with a plate of hummus, red bell pepper, pita, cucumber, Dubliner cheese, and cold-cubed 3-day old leftover NY strip steak (and some salt). Perfect!! The color was still vibrant ... the taste was exquisite and lively, nothing super-long-lived on my palette but intense fruit and balanced with great tannins. Again, surprisingly alive for its age. Wish I knew how long to wait before opening the last bottle. Moreover, wish I had more of it to share with everyone. Thx again CH!

Still somewhat tannic. Need to decant for one hour. Plum, berries, cassis on the nose. Not a lot of nose but it is there. Medium tannins. Was great with steak. Very concentrated nose and taste. Can last for several more years.
