I think I grabbed some of that several years back (not the 2017, of course), and as I recall, it was a pretty good value. Around $12?
That 2008 is 17.2 ABV....holy sh**, it must drink like a meal!I’m a bit of a PS fanatic, ran across these wines at an excellent price. WA scores of 96, 96, 95, and 95+ left to right. The 01 and 02 will be consumed quickly, both near the end of the window, 04’s pretty close as well. The 08’s are mature but have 10 years left. Can’t wait to get started!
That 2015 Mayacamas cab was aged a total of 32 months in neutral wood, approximately 20 months in large wooden tanks followed by 12 months in barrel. Should be interesting!No duds in this bunch. The Mayacamas was #2 on the WS Top Wines of 2019 (96pts). Black Slate was #24 (93pts). The Vieux Telegraphe CdP (95pts).
Try somma dem coon ass wines ya got.......Geaux Tigers!!I belong to 5 Virginia wine clubs and get 72 bottles a year plus what I buy when I do my pick ups. Even though the wines are made by 4 different winemakers I'm thinking I have developed a cellar palate. I should really start taking some advice from this thread and expand my horizon.
I had the Chilean Cab a while ago and it was very nice. Definately full bodied with lots of fruit but I can't tell you what, I'm just not very good at that. With all that fruit I'm guessing you didn't use a lot of oak.Try somma dem coon ass wines ya got.......Geaux Tigers!!
No barrel aging, I was still a carboy + adjuncts winemaker at that time, so you hit that one on the head. Think it was just a bunch of French Stavin cubes. Also, an incomplete MLF, but it’s mellowed a lot since bottling,I had the Chilean Cab a while ago and it was very nice.

looked it up on Parker as well, no dice. Few bottles owned by folks on CT, but no reviews. There were a few WA reviews of the wine from a few years back, upper 80’s to 90 range. Probably a good solid wine that you’ll enjoy.Thanks for that. A little disappointed in that "all-important number" , but that is okay. Thank you for the info -- I think I will treat it like a Chianti, and drink it sooner rather than later.
