I was lucky and found a bottle of Lot 200 at a boutique wine store in my area (only 1 bottle in the store). Of course the store had no idea what they had and sold it to me fairly cheap. SOOOOO GOOD!!!! Plum, dark fruit, super bold but the age has really defined this wine. It truly is amazing what age will do for a cab. I will try harder not to drink my CH Cabs and age them.
Lot 200 (after 10 years of waiting)
Finally opened one of my bottles of Lot 200 and all I can say is wow! Dark fruits, think cherries and boysenberries. I decanted this wine for around 45 minutes, too. Big bold flavor and great finish. The wine actually got better sitting in my glass at our dinner table which I paired with 4oz Petite Filet Mignon from Snake River Farms. (Excellent!!!) Only bad thing, is I only have 1 bottle of this left. I wish I had more.
It pays to wait with a good Cab. Licorace nose and taste that gets better with a little time. Plums and black cherries on the nose/taste with a little time. Concentrated fruit. Medium tannins but I don't think that it will get better with more time. Drinking now and glorious. This one brought tears to my old eyes! One hopes that the newer vintages will do as well with time.
Here we are in 2016 and I opened one last night. It was incredible. I'm so happy that I have four more. It was worth the wait.
