No notes to speak of, barrel tasting in the cave and taking notes just doesn't mix... Wink Razz

I liked the '00 David, bought couple of 750s and a mag. Thanks to cave girl, the mag was signed by Craig Biggio, Steve Trachsel, and Mr. Del Dotto. Big Grin

How 'bout a game of 8-ball for a nice bottle of Cab...
Decanted for about 6 hours. Dark garnet color. Medium body. Intriguing aromas of loamy soil and spices. Not a supple wine, it possesses a dusty backbone and green, herbaceous flavors to go with red currants, black cherries and sweet wood smoke. Fine, even enjoyable, with the meal, this wine by itself revealed a disjointed character not appreciated in a $75 bottle of wine. 2000 was a tough vintage for many producers -- I don’t expect this one to improve much. 87 points.

(Note: this wine was a lot nicer on release at the winery.)

Make Cab, not War.
