A Centennial Masterpiece
As with all of the "centennial" offerings I've had from CH, this 500 was superb. I'd love to know where this one was sourced from, as it tasted like a Silver Oak to me. As always, a fantastic value here.
Just opened Lot 500 w grilled Rib eye. Amazing! Tannins have softened. Still plenty of blue and black fruit. Wonderful Cab.
A great Cab
We bought 6 bottles and taste tested one right away. It was so good that we bought another case. We cellared them and have been enjoying them for quite a while. We have 3 left and they have fully blossomed. Rounded tannins, with balanced red and blue fruit. A wonderfully enjoyable wine. I will miss them!
Outstanding wine ready to drink
Big beautiful concentrated nose. Concentrated taste, very powerful. Drinking now but will age well. Will drink the last bottle 2/18. Can't wait! Got to wait for these big wines to age a bit before you drink them!
Nice Smooth Cab
Its been awhile since I last opened a bottle of this wine. It very nicely balanced and smooth wine and good silky mouthfeel. Fruity but not over the top.
Nicely balanced Cab
So glad that we cellared this for awhile based on other reviews, and also decanted for about an hour before tasting. At this point, it is nice, open, and accessible. Rounded tannins, with balanced red and blue fruit. A very pleasant and interesting wine at this point in its life.
This was the best buy of my wine buying days. We bought a couple of bottles, and enjoyed them so much, and so quickly, that we wound up going back and buying a couple of cases. I loved it so much, that I only managed to hold one on the side. The rest are gone.
Got better..and better...and better!
This bottle has developed wonderfully. Smooth, rich, beautifully mellowed tannins, a gorgeous improvement from the first few bottles I sampled more than a year ago, when I wasn't quite as blown away as I'd hoped. But- with a 12 bottle purchase, I'm thrilled with what's left in the cellar. I am a lucky man!
One of the best CH wines you are going to find. Tasty cabernet for a special occasion. I'm saving a couple bottles to see how this one ages. Hoping it gets better in the next 5 or so years.
Dry, fairly smooth, slightly oaky (I like oaky); I gave it a 92
