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.
1999 ARMIDA Cabernet Sauvignon Scharf Vineyard Dry Creek Valley Sonoma Co. 13.4
