'97 Seavey Cabernet- disappointing for the price point. Showed a roasted fruit/raisin character that I didn't like.
EB, I'm thinking a heat damaged bottle. I have never had a Seavey show like this in anyway.
That could be. Great provenance is no guarantee (brought this bottle home directly from the winery).
In that case I would strongly suggest that you contact the winery and mention how this bottle showed, diplomatically suggest the suspect heat damage and politely inquire if they wouldn't mind replacing it.
