Incredible amount of tannin. Heavy on the Merlot in the blend. Dry and mouth smacking. Opens up with time if you let it sit. Wonderful notes of oak to an overall dark berry taste. Medium bodied and complex.

WOW! This wine has reached it's pinnacle I believe and I am so glad I found this rogue bottle. Deep, rich and well balanced while being super concentrated. This is a powerful, yet graceful cab and it drinking exquisitely right now. If you can find it, drink it now!

Great fruit, earthiness and mineral flavors. Blueberry pops nicely.

Decanted 30 min. Nose of earth, smoke and blueberry fruit. Attack and mid-palate are similar, with a tar component appearing as well. I love the earthiness and big blueberry flavors. This went very well with a vegetarian pizza. One of my favorite offerings from Stolpman, I'm extremely disappointed they discontinued this cuvee. The latest release of their Estate Syrah has 15% Grenache, so I'm *hoping* it will be similar to this wine (especially since I'm down to my last bottle!).

Popped and poured. Nose of earth, blueberry and tar, following to the palate. Has that distinctive Stolpman earthiness that can be overpowering, but, as with the Syrah, is VERY nice here. For sub-$20, this is a killer wine. Must buy more, as Stolpman has discontinued this cuvee. Outstanding - 91 points.

Had this twice in the last 2-3 weeks and enjoyed. Nice, complex, what you would expect from a Napa Cab, nothing extraordinary but very solid.

Dense and saturated, with deep purple fruit and nuances of chocolate and smoky oak. An engaging wine with an absolutely compelling finish.

Tight at first, but quickly picks up steam in the glass, with dark cherry, plum, tobacco, pepper, mineral and hot stone notes pumping through the long, fruit- and i terroir n -filled finish. Really fleshes out nicely, with velvety tannins that are at... Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from Rhone in France. 2003 Vieux Telegraphe, Domaine du Chateauneuf du Pape La Crau 750ml

Farbe: Rubinrot. Intensive Aromen von roten Früchten und Schokolade, welche sich ebenfalls im Gaumen bemerkbar machen.

Attraktives tiefes Kirschrot mit violetten Tönen. Vielversprechende, komplexe Aromatik. Elegant. Im Gaumen, kräftige, gut eingebundene und mundfüllendes Tannine, ein Wein mit einer verheissungsvollen Entwicklung.
