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.

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

Revealing rich, ripe, balanced fruit intermixed with forest floor, smoke, and creosote, along with moderate tannin, and medium to full body, the big, rich 2003 Vendimia Selecionada will drink well for 3-4 more years.

Ruby-red. Alluringly perfumed bouquet of red- and black currant, cherry, musky herbs and mocha. Dry, focused and complex, with currant, cherry pit, fruitcake and candied rose flavors given shape by slightly gritty tannins. finishes a bit dry, but with firm grip. Give this some air and drink up.

A nice hue entices you, and the nose is meaty, tight and well oaked. With solid blackberry, dark cherry and chocolate flavors, this old-vines wine delivers the goods and manages to stay on course from start to finish. Almost everything about the wine is solid and commendable, even if it doesn't have the chops of something from the top echelon.

Tasting Notes:

"Rich and bold with intense flavors of chocolate dipped black fruit, accompanied by notes of sweet oak. Firm and structured ripe tannins lead to a lengthy, fruit driven finish. "
