Big Bold Wonderful
A really big and Bold Cabernet. Will only get better with a few more years in the cellar. Let this decant for a couple of hours to let the flavor open up. Pairs well with nice medium steak.
Full bodied. After a 1 hour decant, deep complexities and a very balanced wine will emerge.
Great classic cab
Fabulous nose with great dark currant and plum. Rich dark fruit with well integrated tannins that opens up even better with a couple hours. Tremendous value at twice the price
Didn't buy enough
Bought some of the '13. Can't wait to try it.
What a great wine
I only bought 6 bottles and I opened one Labor Day weekend. It has that lush mouth coating tannins, cedar notes, black currants and other flavors I love. 92 points on WS, I agree maybe even 93 points.
You snooze you lose
So sorry I didn't hoard a few cases of this while it was still around. The gold standard by which I will measure future CH cabs. Hope there is something similar coming for 2013!
best cab ever
Been ordering wine form CHW for about 4 years. 515 is the best cab I have yet received. I only order cabs and zins.
This was really a mouth full
I had just read your email and decided to open the one bottle that I had for my 48th wedding anniversary. It was everything that you described. My wife and I both were impressed. Unfortunately, when I tried to order a few more, you were sold out. I guess I need to act quicker.
Get a Ribeye, crack this puppy open and enjoy. At $32 you're easily getting a $75 value. Buy a case, sit some down and drink the rest, it's ready and should get better.
Excellent Cabernet. One of Cameron Hughes' best
Very big, full bodied, loaded with fruit and nicely aged for a smooth oaky vanilla flavor.
