Anyone tried any of these recently?

Thinking of buying these wines below for my personal cellar (to drink over the coming year).

So I was wondering if anyone tried any of these wines recently…And if so, would you be willing to share your input/ tasting notes?

1997 Anderson’s Conn Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
1997 Havens Merlot Reserve
1997 Forman Cabernet Sauvignon
1997 La Jota Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain
1997 Lancaster Reserve Merlot Cabernet Sauv / Franc
1997 Spring Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

Thank you in advance!

Not that recent but the 97 Forman was amazing a few years ago.
Btw, it doesn’t get much love here but a 97 Hess Collection held its own against the Forman that night.
Good luck David, it was a good year especially for mountain fruit (pretty warm year).

La Jota was great, although a bit riper and sweeter than earlier vintages.

I would go for the Forman!

Many thanks Craig! This source does not offer 97 Hess Collection, but will be on the lookout…

Thanks for your recommendation Victor!

Will take your advice (and Craig’s) and try the La Jota as mentioned per Victor as well.
