January 4, 2017 - Aroma just shot out of the bottle when opened, decanted for 90 minutes, wonderful bouquet, great with steak, and a very long finish. Lots going on here, blueberries, currents, blackberries, and hints of chocolate, licorice, and mint. Very impressive, and should improve with age.

December 17, 2016 - Another Saturday at Chevalier...Mostly Blind (Chevalier Fine Wines - Chicago IL): Tasted double blind alongside Schrader 2012 LPV. Impossible to mistake as anything other than California Cabernet, and while some people adore this style of wine, I found it too fleshy and flashy without the gravitas and fundamental concentration of the Schrader in the next glass.

August 21, 2016 - No decant, but consumed over 4 hours. Dark fruit, cassis, plum ... Tobacco, licorice, and a bit of chocolate on the finish. Long soothing finish on the palate. First class.

July 24, 2016 - Needs at least another 5 years. Drank after an hour of decanting and wasn't even starting to open up. Great now and will be even better after resting.
July 15, 2016 - Another fabulous wine. Deep ruby look with a breathtaking nose full of a bouquet of red fruits. Finish was amazing! This wine is worth every penny! Totally legit!
