If the Label Says ‘Scharf’, Buy It.

Solid nearly impenetrable ruby with pink edges.  No bricking.  Magnificent polished nose.
Now THIS is a cab selected at a young age with everything in it.  I had been buying Sharff Family Vineyards for some time bottled by Meeker.  I had a case of this, purchased through futures at barrel-tasting.  Listen up, “wine-club” people: FUTURES was a program where by you could…. oh n/m. Just join the club.
Gobs and Gobs of fruit left in it . Strong backbone of acid and fading tannins.  Still has a decade left.  Not going ANYWHERE.  Shocking, actually, considering the price.
