2nd of the 3 pack. First bottle was opened in 2012, which was dark, and spice driven. Not today, opened with pure, extremely concentrated fruit and little spice. 15 minutes later the wine went "quiet"...and that's being nice. Don't get it, almost like it ate a Valium. Plan to open the 3rd in 2022.

Really nice wine enjoyed this afternoon. The one thing I remember is that this wine was what I envision as the true embodiment of the 2007 vintage. Lots of fruit, pepper, still actually had quite a bit of tannin on the finish but had definitely softened and integration was coming along quite nicely. This wine was NOT a show stopper. However, with excellent experience with Maiden in the past it was one of the bottles that I tried first and then came back to about 2 hours later. This bottle is continuing to evolve, and definitely got a little deeper with fruit intensity in the middle. Not bad, and will continue to last another few years. Although I think I'd start drinking this one sooner as opposed to later.

Taste like grapes! I think it's funny that wine taste like blackberry, strawberry, melon, apple, apricot, pineapple, etc, but no one ever says it tastes like grapes. Odd. But really, this too does not taste like grapes. Cedar, berry, lead, etc

This was the 2007. Too laid back for me. The ratings suggested some dark chocolate, but it was closer to a light but pleasant frosting

Fantastic cab- drinking so well but still with solid tannins to go another 10-15 years- well integrated although the vanilla from the oak is still present. Beautiful perfumed fruit
