    January 12, 2013 - Saturday with David White (Domaine Wine Storage & Sun Wah - Chicago, IL): off bottle

    November 12, 2012 - Dinner at Sun Wah (Sun Wah BBQ - Chicago, IL): A great year in California adds a bit of depth and volume to this wine. Compared to the 1995 & 1996, this was a bit darker and denser. Still had that great minty, earthy, dark fruit profile that reminds me a lot of aged Montelena's.

    January 7, 2012 - I am not sure I can say this was corked but it was acrid and bitter - NOT recommended.

    October 15, 2011 - Nerd Dinner (Medium Rare - Washington, DC): Another wonderful bottle of Thunder Mountain Cabernet. Nose is full of eucalyptus, peppers, dark fruit and smokey minerals. I continue to love these Thunder Mountain wines...restrained and elegant with focused dark fruit, cedar, shredded tobacco and spices. Thunder Mountain continues to be a favorite California cabernet producer for me...great stuff.
