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!

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.

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!).

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.

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.

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.

With only 100 cases made, the Pesus is a special treat. The wine comes from a tiny parcel of 80+ year old Tempranillo vines that are blended with a small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Notes of boysenberry, cherry liquor, smoked meat, and licorice combine together to create this amazing wine.

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 selection of the finest barrels, the 2003 Syrah The Governor reveals toasty new oak along with abundant blackberry, blueberry, and licorice notes, and hints of camphor and flowers. Full-bodied, dense, and rich, it will benefit from 1-2 more years of bottle age, and should last for a decade or more. Inky purple. Sexy aromas of blackberry, boysenberry, violet and vanilla custard, complicated by spicy oak. Theres big-time oak going on, but also plenty of ripe, luscious dark berry fruit that verges on liqueur-like. Fat, broad and sweet on the finish, the oak spice coming up strong. Theres clearly great material and sex appeal here, and the oak is plenty suave, but Id love to see it ratcheted down a notch. ** Only 1 in Stock **

This is really beautiful and balanced with berry and light vanilla character. Full-bodied densely balanced yet refined and caressing. Beautiful wine. From American owner Colin Ferrenbach. Best after 2006. 4 830 cases made. Wine Spectator.

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. "
