"Wow!" says it all; the rest is just filler. Smooth, full-bodied, dry just right but still mellow, nice bouquet that promises good things to come, woody (which I like) and a suggestion of vanilla. Ten years ago I rated the 2006 Hughes Wellman a 96; I give this 2011 Private Reserve Cab a 98. I am glad I bought a few bottles more when I did, as CHW seems to be out of stock of the '11 now.
What a beauty
Very dark purple in the glass with feint legs, interesting as it boasts 14.5% alcohol. The nose is rich with cassis, plum extract, oak and tea. The initial palate starts off jammy, full bodied and tannic. The dark fruit is very unctuous and the flavors just keep coating my mouth. The mid palate shows off a nice acidic bite alongside more cassis and leather. The finish turns a touch blue, berries and oak come to mind. This is a really delicious yet still young Napa Cab that shows off the Cali sun in a nice, full bodied package. 92 points and 4 stars for this $75 beauty. Drink till 2030.
A very nice wine!
This is the most expensive bottle of wine that I’ve ever purchased. I made sure to decant as recommended and found it to be a very nice wine. I have one more bottle to share after our lockdown ends and we can open our homes up again.
Doesn't meet expectations
This is a good wine and I've enjoyed it. However, the wine does not meet the expectations I had or the price I paid.
Oh Em Gee!!
This wine was amazing! I expected it to be great but had no idea it would be THIS delicious. Really glad we have another bottle to hold onto - only upset I didn't stock up more when I had the chance.
Wow! One of the best wines I have ever had, should have bought more!
It's a nice cab but I've had more here for much less. It's a pretty typical Napa cab taste, but nothing that jumps out as being special or spectacular about it.
Superb wine, well worth the price!
This is a great wine!! Took some time to open up, but I really enjoyed it! Def worth the price!
CH has many fine wines from which to select so please leave this Cab !or me!
I choose not to write a favorable review because I want to keep secret the superb quality of this fine Cab to myself and for the few others who have latched on to a fine delicate wine!
Took a minute to experience the the full body flavor. Will get this again!
