    WLTV North Jersey Off-Line at Basilicos: Aerated the heck out of this. The fruit really never made its way out, but I did finally get some smoke on the nose. The taste was very closed, but there was some great structure there with the oak and small hints of other flavors. I can't score this now, but I know this is going to be really yummy in about 10-15 years. [NR]

    Decanted" for 6.5 hours. Nose is overwhelmingly coffee beans. with green pepper, blackberries and black peppercorns mixed in. I also get some cedar plank; but coffee is the primary aroma. Mouth-feel was very smooth. Cherry cough syrup, coffee, a little tobacco, a little strawberry. Strong, warming (alcoholic) finish that the mid-palate (though quite nice) simply cannot compete with. It is a nice-tasting wine, if a bit out of balance. It would benefit tremendously from 3-4 years of cellaring, but I don't know if the alcohol will integrate enough. I actually liked this wine a lot - despite the off-balance finish, so I will score it 91 for the flavor profile and mouthfeel, then take off 2 points for the overly hot finish. Final score = 89 points = very good/excellent. [89]

    Nose of plums, blackberries, blueberries, cherry wood, maybe a little sugar cake. Cherry wood flavor with a little dirt and tar. Tannins are still quite prominent. This wine still has quite a bit of life left in it. Matched very well with Bracciole dinner.

    <p><b>2001 Blackford Cabernet Sauvignon</b><i> - USA, California, Napa Valley (1/12/2007)</i><br>GREAT NOSE! Sweet cassis, blueberry, a little tobacco, and maybe a little Szechuan pepper. Taste (immediately after opening) is cherry, tobacco, rosehips -- I can tell this will continue to evolve! The 14.5% alcohol is well integrated. Nice, drying tannins. This is drinking beautifully now! On day 2 this wine was even better. After comparing to other CA cabs at this price point, this one has to be rated Outstanding! <i><b>(93 pts.)</b></i></p> <p><i>Posted from <a target='_new' href='http://www.cellartracker.com'>CellarTracker</a></i></p>

    Decanted for an hour. Nose was sour and awkward. Flavor was cherries and smoked wood. Pleasant drying tannins on finish and nice mouth feel. This is best as a food wine in my opinion. Enjoy with grilled and barbecued meats for best pairing. [87]

    Enjoyed 2 bottles with friends to accompany a "Beef Barolo" Italian dinner. The wine is in a really good place right now. It proved to be an outstanding accompaniment to the main dish which was basically a beef roast braised in a full bottle of Barolo wine. [90]

    Still drinking exceptionally well. Enjoyed with dinner of Szechuan Green Beans, Chow Fun and London Broil. It married perfectly. It is unusual to find a wine that tastes great with spicy food, but this one does. I feel this wine is especially suited to accompanying food. [89]

    Nose of cherry cough syrup, plum, cedar and cigar box. Flavor of plum and tobacco. Acidity not yet integrated, but this also helps make this an outstanding food wine when coupled with beef and/or tomato-based dishes; it actually improves the taste of your food. Drunk by itself the wine is not as pleasurable. [89]
