Tasting Notes
& Comments

Must note: I am having this after having a Cabernet

Aroma: Smells like old books. Paper, reminds me of my great grandmother. Its pleasant, little perfumey.

Palate: Very dry, strong tannins. For a red wine I'm getting a lot of white wine characteristics, pear is strong on the finish as well as some chocolate. Very light, drinks as a Pinot.

Pairs great with a Cuban Ramon Allones Specially Selected. - 06/13/2011

One of my favorite supermarket Cabs. Always available, 6,000 cases made a year. A QPR wine.

Aroma: Black Currants with hints of cedar.

Palate: Big and Bold it hits you right away letting you know you are drinking a Napa Cab. Dark Berries and Oak, but the oak is not overpowering, nice balance of all the flavors. Aftertaste leaves the palate with strawberries and licorice. - 06/12/2011

This is a 100% Cabernet. No blending

Aroma: Deep dark fruits, blueberries, blackberries, and tobacco.

Palate: A little tight. Definitely needs to age a couple of more years. Great acidity and tannins. Starts off with a burst of black berries then turns into a jammy raspberry with an aftertaste of a Padron 80th Anniversary Maduro cigar. A little heat afterwards.

If there was ever a wine to pair with a great cigar this is it. - 06/12/2011

This is NOT Chateau Le Gay Pomerol. Found this at BevMo as part of their 5 cent wine sale. Curiosity made me buy this.

Aroma: Cheese and meat...

Palate: This wine is very smooth and has a really nice velvety texture. Very earthy with nice hints of red berries with low acidity and quiet tannins. However, this wine is very "Bretty" at the finish. The aftertaste is full of stinky cheese that is very powerful. - 06/11/2011

Aroma: Dark berries and plum

Palate: Full bodied, long finishing, great tannins. Dark berries and dark chocolate hit the mid palate and the finish is clean, a little heat from the alcohol but in a couple of years this will be a classic wine - 06/11/2011

Bought at winery. Very good, but very young. In a couple of years will be amazing. Poetry is still the class of Cliff Lede.

One of the better supermarket wines. The aroma is very meaty and has lots of molasses. Good acidity and tannins. Good dark fruit flavors. However this wine is very thin and lacks substance and complexity. I did aerate this and let it decant for over an hour before my first taste. Bought at Costco for 17 bucks to try. - 06/11/2011

Their website shows this bottle for $75. I found it at Grocery Outlet for $14.99. If this bottle was bought at $75 I would score it a 60. However, I did buy it at $14.99 so my score of 80 is accurate for that price. The Cab is very smooth but has ZERO fruit, all vegetal. If you like sour/bitter cabs but are very smooth, you may really like this. Not for me though. - 06/11/2011

One hour in the decanter: I felt like I ate a board of oak while having a cherry lifesaver in my mouth and then rinsed my mouth out with rubbing alcohol.

Letting it sit in the decanter for an additional 3 hours it changed considerably. It went from amazingly Oaky to very fruity with nice tannins.

This wine cannot be pop n pour, it has to be decanted for at least 4 hours to let it develop, but it still has a rough alcohol burn at the finish that doesn't sit well with me. - 06/11/2011

Very oaky, too much for my taste. Strong berry flavor upfront but gets completely overridden by the oak. Highly recommend for termites. - 06/11/2011
