  • 2003 Bressler Cabernet Sauvignon – USA, California, Napa Valley, St. Helena (10/26/2012)
    WIMLNRTasted non blind. Opened and glass decanted about 45 minutes before serving.

    Dark garnet color in the glass, clear looking throughout.

    Unfortunately this bottle was mildly corked. When I opened the bottle I caught a whiff of it so I stuck my nose to the cork and sure enough it was. I glass decanted two glasses and at first whiff I didn’t really pick up much on TCA. So I let it sit a while. Unfortunately as the evening wore on I continued to pick up on the TCA more and more. Classic sign; it got worse as the evening wore on.

    Oddly enough I went ahead and took a task of it up front since it was so mildly corked and I couldn’t really discern a problem other than the fruit was a bit muted. As the evening wore on it got a tiny bit worse as I continued to monitor it but incredibly it was never bad enough that you couldn’t drink it if you’re not sensitive to TCA.

    It is throwing a fair amount of sediment at this point so be sure and stand it a day before decanting strictly for sediment. (NR/flawed)

    Seems a bit bigger or perhaps more “extracted” than previous vintages. (91 points)
