April 26, 2016 - 2008 Napa Valley Cabernet Night (Lincoln Squre Steaks, Amsterdam Ave, New York City): This drank so much better than my last bottle. It was a little heavier than the Larkmead and not as well balanced, but still a very enjoyable wine.
April 17, 2016 - Unfortunately, this bottle was corked. Have 1 more left, hope it is better!

April 11, 2016 - Dinner at Bistro Le Steak. Popped and poured. The 2nd wine we opened, the first being a 2010 Larkmead Firebelle.
The wine seemed a little flat, I'm a big fan of the One Point Five wines, but I'm wondering if its in or just past its prime drinking window. I will be opening up another 2008 later this month, it will be interesting to see how that bottle tastes. I have older and younger vintages of this wine in the past 12 months, and this was the least impressive bottle I've had.

March 19, 2016 - Nice rich, fruity taste here. Very good
February 19, 2016 - Stag's Leap tasting at Pine Ridge during PNV week...
Big wine, as expected from Shafer. Dark fruits, cedar, camphor, slight pruniness. Sulky tannins and integrated oak. Not sure how long this had been open, I suspect it needs a couple hours in a decanter to really show, hard to rate based on this tasting but definitely a lot going on
