tt - your wine will be shipped this week. i will email you with tracking #
Popped one tonight and will follow over today and tomorrow. Bottle open for hour no decant.

Reminds me very much of a young Seavey Cab. Very happy about this btw. Will post updates.

Day 2 - half bottle in cellar recorked -- to see how tough it is!

Held up real well. Little more fruit forward, still very traditional cab.

Overall, a real good wine, a very nice change up to most of the newer fruit power cabs. Drinking this side by side with a Rivers Marie Cab would be a real nice contrast.

Well done.

How long did you decant?
Im not sure it really needs a decant. Probably could not hurt, but its real good out of the chute.
I would recommend decanting. I did not, and think it would have been better if I had. J1m does not lie that it's good w/o decanting, but I think it would be beneficial for 1-2 hours.

BTW - any word on 2008???

rickym13 - any decision on the '08? Thanks!


we will be sending out announcement very shortly with our final decision on our '08. it was very difficult and long process as to what we were going to do.....
stayed tuned Wink
How is this a public service announcement? Reads like a sales pitch to me. The wine sounds good but public service announcement?
Unfortunate about the '08 vintage, but I respect the reasoning for sure. I guess I'll have to nurse my remaining supply of '07 for a little longer than expected Smile

Dumpster dive because today I stood up the final bottle from my six-pack of 2007 Ostreon. Each of the previous five has been terrific and It's a shame the project began and ended with this one vintage. 

Fun to look back on the contributors to this thread.  Where are Powell and Ricky these days?

Powell is in our WS Forums Cork Dorks fantasy football league.  Won the titles this season, in fact, the bastard!

 I believe there were 2 or 3 vintages, '07 and '11. Possibly '09? I seem to recall that it only came out every other year? Anyway, I still have one 2011 left. Last one I opened several months ago was fantastic!

Good to hear about the 2011. I remember there was no ‘08 but never heard anything after that. I must have fallen off the mailing list.

I also think Powell decamped for Hong Kong around 2011 so maybe that ended this project.
