Unless this was bottle variation, this has changed a lot since our last bottle late last year. Less fruit, more muted, earthiness starting to show. No reason to wait any longer on these.

A big, deep dark blend. Lots of fruit in the nose and on the palate. Love all the Cyrus vintages, this one is another good one.

Old school, wet earth nose reminiscent of a Left Bank Bordeaux. It's like standing on top of a hill with wafts of petrichor in the air. The earthy goodness is countered by cherries, raspberries, and an edge of berry-flavored hard candy. Mid-to-full bodied, with a tasty medicinal finish that is laced with warm, chile de arbol. Underrated and lots of bang for the buck.

I was poured this double blind and had no idea it was so old- not showing any bricking and definitely not over the hill. Only initial give away was the precipitation.

PnP was initially muted, took a couple hours to open up. Gentle tannins and high acidity, touch of raisins. After a couple of hours, clear cab nose and no signs of falling off. Impressive wine.

A Bordeaux blend, with minor amounts of Merlot, Cab Franc, Malbec, and Petit Verdot. From the half bottle, slightly tart aroma. The flavour is also slightly tart. I get black currant and black licorice. A good wine but average compared to the field.

Pretty dark purple color. Nose of dark fruit. Black berries, black cherries. Very pure palate. I don't detect any oak at all on the nose or palate. Moderately tannic. Medium to long finish. Palate similar to nose with dark fruits. I think this wine needs some age to open up. Lots of potential. Aerated, then double aerated, the first few glasses with only moderate success in coaxing out more aromas and flavors. More to come...

Not a big, bold Cab, but a very tasty one. Balanced, juicy, decent finish.

Ruby, purple color, somewhat opaque. Nose: grape skittles, cherries, oak, warm baking spices. Palette: mostly confirms nose, with appealing tannins. A lot of oak on this wine for better or worse. Medium body. Would've guessed higher alcohol than what is listed (13.9). Overall, a decent CA cab for the $, but personally I wouldn't seek it out.

Good and balanced. Very fruity and lighter than many. Vaguely reminiscent of Chinon cab franc in its herby "green" character. A good buy for the price.

A nice Zinfandel. I enjoyed drinking it. Nothing to write home about it, but it was a nice wine to drink after a hard days work.
