2012 Cabernet made from frozen must from the Musso & Viscussi Vineyard on the Silverado Trail that I got from Brehm's.

As far as I know there may have only been three entries but I feel kind of proud about it. The judges notes were very interesting.

Congratulations, I'm sure there were plenty of entries up in that neck of the woods. Grew up in So. City and the San Mateo Fair was a real big deal every year.

They gave me 3 score sheets ( i hope you can see the photo okay) 20 maximum points and I got 17, 15.5 and 14. Only two of the judges made notes on the paper, one just wrote "simple for a cab - no finish" and hopefully you can read all the notes from the other judge. I am glad they gave me the notes, it's interesting how each judge tasted things differently but I sort of knew everyone's palette is a little different. I think I will use their score sheet and make up my own. This is from the judge who seemed to like my wine the best.
