What I like about wine:

Almost without exception for me, wine must be an accompanyment to food. I rarely consume it otherwise. I have been a winemaker in the past and can often see flaws, and understand the origin of the flaws that others cannot. Excellence in value is my goal.

Stephan Gushue's Product Reviews

Stephan Gushue - Clarks Summit, PA (read all my reviews)

Rating:
(11/9/2011)
Style: Big & Bold
Opens up with an opulent nose of crushed blackberries, currants and ample oak tones. Med deep purple/garent color with some transpancy at the rim. Decent flavors but a very coarse texture that simply doesn't improve with time in the glass and finsihes unbalanced and little hot. Not my type of Napa cab! I'm beginning not to trust WE ratings. Maybe an 85 rating would be more in line with my senses.

Style: Smooth & Supple
A solid wine with a wonderful nose and deep color. Mouthfeel is beautiful with good extraction and outstanding fruit. Great wine for the price and much better than the WS rating might indicate. Cellared away a few to watch develop over time. The wine carries good Rutherford fruit, smooth texture with enough extraction to develop boldness and borderline big wine.

Style: Smooth & Supple
This was a positive encounter that renewed my faith in CSM cabernets. This wine has a big nose with fruit and deep color. The wine is smooth and supple with excellent fruit, subtle oak structure and some vanillan complexities. Very nice for a young wine and a very good value.
