Previous vintage notes:

2008 Vintage Wine Spectator - 91 points - Tannins grip around the edges of expressive cherry, roasted meat and herb flavors, mingling effectively on the long finish. Strikes an attractive balance and keeps singing on the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2014 through 2018. - H.S.

2007 Wine Enthusiast - 93 points - The 2007 Chester-Kidder offers rich aromas and flavors of black cherries, violets and dark chocolate complimented by nuances of cedar and spice. Deep crimson-colored it balances concentration with elegance and a vibrant mouth feel that gains complexity across the mid-palate and leaves an impression of spicy fruits across a long, silky finish.

2007 Wine Spectator - 91 points - Smooth, round and polished, this is generous with its black cherry, black olive and coffee flavors, lingering on the supple finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2016. 1,015 cases made. - H.S.

2006 Vintage Tasting Notes

Aromas of dried figs and cocoa powder, along with hints of tamarind and toasty oak are followed by intense violet and blueberry jam flavors beautifully integrated around a spicy core. - the winery

2005 Vintage Tasting Notes

2005 Wine Advocate - 93 points - The 2005 Chester Kidder Red Wine is made by Gilles Nicault who is also the winemaker in residence at Long Shadows. It is a blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Syrah, and 5% Merlot. It was aged for 30 months in 90% new, French and Hungarian oak. Opaque purple-colored, it reveals an alluring nose of brooding black fruit, pencil lead, mineral, and spice box. Round and ripe on the palate, it borders on opulence while concealing enough tannin to support another 6-8 years of cellaring. The sweet, savory fruit carries through into the lengthy finish. Drink this superb effort from 2013 to 2026. - Jay Miller
