Lot 773--Great Bottle of Wine!
We wish there was a category above best value when we rated this bottle of wine. Yes, it is more than we usually pay for a bottle of wine, but it was a fantastic value. This is a bottle to enjoy with friends over a meal of prime rib or pork loin roast.
Robust nose of florals and red fruit. Equally robust on the palate with a nice finish.
Perfectly paired with a butter thyme cast iron steak.
Great silky texture, smooth taste! Highly recommended!!
Favorite of the Fall Release Cabs
Of the lots #777, #773 and #775 this is my favorite . I decanted for about an hour which is needed if you want to it justice. This seem to be a classic Rutherford Hills Cabernet. On the first pour the color is medium ruby with slow forming and slow leaving legs which may indicate more alcohol then the 14.9 ABV. On the nose this has black cherry and berry jam notes coming right at you with a hint of vanilla and clay dust. On the palate the fruits are trying to break out but this is still young. There is low to medium acidity with powerful tannins. This seems to be very age worthy. It is well worth the price. Thinking trying to get another case even though I already purchased one.
Buy and Cellar
Did a side by side tasting of #777, #773 and #775 with some wine loving neighbors. The three reviews are from all our notes. We decanted all three 45 minutes. This was our very favorite - although all 4 of us are very partial to Rutherford Hills. Excellent nose - Cam says 'dusty' cherry - perfect description. Got the vanilla on the finish. I bought several and about to get more to put away.
Age a bit
We spent up a little on this one, and very good wine. Will save the second bottle and crack in a year or two
So glad we bought 12! We gave away 3 and after enjoying 1 bottle, we are looking forward to letting the other 8 rest so we can enjoy one each year as the bottles mature.
one to hold
Very nice, but will grow with time. i plan to buy a case to hang onto for a while
