WTN: 1995 Robert Pecota Kara's Vineyard, Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa)
Now here is a winery you don't hear about much anymore. (I believe they recently sold their property/vineyard and are in the process of acquiring a new site).
This is another orphan that should have been consumed maybe 4 or 5 years ago...I should have known better than to keep this one as long as I did. Not unpleasant, but simple/uninspiring/lacking structure. There is only a slight fade at the rim and the nose holds great promise with distinct notes of mature black cherry/cassis/cedar. The palate is a quite diffent story. Light bodied with a soft/missing mid-palate. The tannins have fully integrated and provide little support for the fruit and acids. Well down the slope and should be comsumed ASAP if you have any.
Smile, it gives your face something to do!
