Treasure Hunter says “Each Treasure Hunter wine goes through a pain-staking process of examination from our panel of nine called The De-Vine Nine. Made up of top sommeliers, winemakers and restaurateurs, they are the best of the best and they pour through hundreds of wines before they are deemed worthy. Each wine is a small one-time offering and represents an extraordinary opportunity to drink seminal wines of great importance. Liquid rubies and drops of gold. Treasure Hunters we are – or so we are told.”
In the glass I found this wine to be dark plum in color, pretty deep and dark. On the nose I get notes of dark fruits, light spice and pepper, black licorice, and possibly clove. On the palate I taste dark dried fruits, blackberry, black cherry, the wine is big and dry, with pretty grippy tannins, it really fills your mouth with a long finish.
I tasted this wine over the course of two days, at first pop and pour the wine was really big, bold, and in your face. Day two the wine changed into a different story, it balanced out, and smoothed out a bit. This is still a big bold California Cab, I would probably decant it and air it out a bit to bring everything into balance. I really enjoyed this wine after it got a bit of air.
