Once again, thanks!
Thanks for the review!
Maybe you should post these little nuggets of information separately somewhere. They don't exactly spark conversation like you'd expect on a blog. Just my 2 cents.
So true. Anyone that drinks wine with me knows I'm a stickler on the wine's temperature. It just makes a huge difference, especially with red wines. That's why I also like to go red wine tasting in the winter months. During the summer, some wineries' tasting rooms aren't air conditioned, and you're really tasting a totally different wine at that point.
Wow, that really is rediculous. I guess only Europe would be so uptight about the image of their wine. While Americans are typically more uptight about sex in general, I'd bet these kinds of ads would have no problem being published here.
Alright, I think I need to revise my previous comment. My initial comments were made after tasting at their tasting room. I bought a bottle that day, but just opened it tonight. I gotta say, this wine blew me away tonight. So much so that I'll be hitting up my Livermore contacts to grab me a few more bottles before they run out. The '01 Steven Kent is what I consider a "classic" cabernet. Aromas of cherry and oak (I can even see where you get your "pencil shavings"), with smooth (oh so smooth) tannins, but extremely well structured. A worthy rival to Napa Cab at half the price? No question now. You couldn't have been more right. I can't say how much longer I'd hold it. It's really not a very big cab. In fact, I'm betting it should be drunk now, and not something that should be in the cellar for very long. Highly recommended, indeed.
A link? Just google it. Man, you're getting lazy with all that drinking you're doing. ;-) http://www.wineanorak.com/deiss.htm Assuming that's what you're talking about Caveman, it seems like a pretty big trip just for some "wine tail". France is pretty far away from California.
