Better than other recent notes. It's definitely at the top of the drinking window but not dead. Even benefitted from a 3 hr decant.

Decent wine for the price. Slightly high on alcohol which is typical for AVV. Buy more to load in the fast moving cubes

Fruit forward medium finish. Light bodied for a Merlot. Easy to drink. Lacks complexity of higher end Merlots.

2 years on and ...... Well it is hard to say. Have my tastes changed? Or has the wine plateaued? My conclusion is the former. The acid remains strong but the tannins have 'left the building'. The cloyey nature of the fruit is not a positive. I find it one dimensional and boring. A fine Syrah or Pinot Noir has so much more to offer and for longer. Perhaps the Bordeaux varietals no longer suit. Back to point 1.

PnP through Vinituri red wine aerator. Ready to drink, relatively soft tannins, nice fruit. Stored overnight in Savino wine preserving carafe. Next day was not as good. Started a little bitter, but softened after 30 minutes in the glass to ok. Drink the whole bottle if you open it.

Seemed a little old and tired to us. Not really what we were expecting from a wine at this level. Liked it much better when we first bought it. Probably waited too long.

began a little jammy esp on the nose, but once it settled down it opened up and was quite a treat.....earthy with plenty of fruit but still retained a smooth and balanced structure with well integrated tannins......not nearly the fruit bomb I envisioned

This wine was tight until decanted and after about 30 minutes it opened up nicely. Big nose, vibrant fruit, and subdued tannins. We had with filet and it paired nicely.

The note below is accurate for us. Tertiary indeed. Good balance, too. Although we have fallen out of love with California Cabernet generally, we really enjoyed this one over four nights, gassed and refrigerated in between. (Given as a gift; it was bought from the winery on release, we believe.)

Decanted 2 hours. Needed way more time to integrate and chill out those tannins. Very tight but you can see the light here. It has a great amount of depth and certainly is medium + body. Nicely oaked but not overly so. Wish the fruit was a bit more in the forefront but certainly great for the price.

This was a wonderful Bordeaux blend of 57% Cabernet S., 26% Cabernet Franc, 11% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot, 3% Malbec. Lush, plush and flavorful; a very nice wine. Wish I could find some more.
