  • 2008 Stefania Cabernet Sauvignon Santa Cruz Mountains – USA, California, San Francisco Bay, Santa Cruz Mountains (3/28/2017)
    WIML91

    Tasted double blind.

    Garnet color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of blueberry, aspirin, black berries and underbrush. Flavors of berries, cherries and earth. Bright acidity, firm tannin, full bodied. Drink with our or continue to hold.

    My guess is this is a 2009 Chateau Figeac from Bordeaux.

    What’s interesting to me here is not that I missed the wine by and entire continent. It’s the fact I scored it 91 points double blind and I’ve had this wine before and I scored it 91 points back then as well. (91 points)
