Re: Nice finish
whats not to like? A great wine for a great price
Ahh, Rutherford Cab, what could be finer?
The wine opens up with the classic Rutherford aroma of lush dark fruit with highlights of tart red berry notes. Flavor follows with nice acidity underpinning textured dense sweet fruit. Some mocha interplay along with iron-fisted tannins wrapped in the decadent fruit velvet glove results in a Cab that is meant to be enjoyed over a few hours and a lovely savory meat dish. Outstanding.
Another Rutherford Gem
What can I say, that famous Rutherford dust does it again. If I only
bought more. Can't wait for 2013 vintage.
a heavy wet red
I expected a little more finish but I was certainly NOT disappointed. All of Cam's wines are very drinkable and I liked this cab - pjc
Great Cab - Sit it down
So I bought 2 cases of this Cab, took one bottle out to try. Excellent, you can tell you have a great big Napa Cab in the glass. Lots of fruit, the glass is just dripping with legs. I will try not to touch this for at least another 2-3 years. If I'd paid $45-70 for the bottles I would only have 4-6 of them and I would write "do not drink until 2020" but since I paid way less, I can dig in starting 2017-18. Highly recommended.
Generally a drinkable wine - just not quite in the "buy again" category for my taste.
...And the Hits Keep Coming
Another Home Run with Lot 452. A very mild wine that you can enjoy in your basement watching a movie. The nose is more floral than fruit. On the palate, the oak comes through very well with the dark fruit and lots of pepper on the finish. The Merlot that is present in this wine really mellows it out creating that smooth, refreshing finish. In my opinion, not as good as its counterparts Lot 285 or Lot 345, but nevertheless, a close 3rd place when comparing to those other 2 wines, is saying a lot about this wine. Drinking well now so no sense in aging this any further. Enjoy it with friends...they won't be disappointed.
A great cab!
I have had lot 285 and lot 345, liked them both. Lot 452 is better!!!
452 is super and will be superb
Wow. I put my nose in my glass and was blown away. I decanted 1/2 my bottle and waited 30 min. Wonderful. I will soon order more and set aside half my order for a few years. Fantastic bang for the buck. I vote yes to #452
