2003 Stags' Leap Winery Cabernet Sauvignon
Popped and poured with John Rueff tonight at Dish in Red Bank. Gorgeous dark garnet color in the glass. The nose was a bit subdued, but had everthing to do with the stems at Dish. Some black currants, black cherry, boysenberry, spice and just a hint of soy.
On the palate, tons of of dark fruits. More black cherry, jammy raspberry and blackberry that were perfectly ripe, and not overly ripe in the least. Tannins were nicely integrated, and there was no alcohol whatsover. This can probably get better with time, but why wait? This is drinking nicely right now. Quite a bit of sediment in the final pour, but no worries. Maybe decant for sediment if you have one. Overall, a great wine that paired nicely with short ribs! 91 points! Cheers!

Born in Illinois, I spent my younger years as a local Chicago Foodie checking out restaurants in the city, and working as a waiter at many of the finest restaurants in the suburbs of Chicago. Look for me visiting a restaurant near you, or at one of the many local wine offlines throughout New Jersey
