    February 1, 2017 - A bit corked.

    January 1, 2017 - Wine 6 in a flight of 6 - served double-blind:

    This wine, priced at $20, played in the flight of five other wines that retail at $50 and higher. The bouquet hooked me for high quality 2011 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, unencumbered by oak. A beautiful wine that features tremendous purity of Cabernet Sauvignon, accentuated by Merlot. Bold, gripping, and very long. It should last until 2027-2030. Ridiculous QPR! 93-94.

    June 15, 2016 - Still too tannic, despite decant. Try again in 3 years, 2019

    January 1, 2016 - Last drank this when it first came out 2-3 years ago. At time, very tannic and I was concerned with "what have I done" as I had bought a case. Now, following a 2 hour decant, a different wine. The tannins have softened considerably. Initially thin in the mid palate. No fruit. By 3 hours after decant, it was much better. The fruit came out, the mid palate filled in and the tannins even softer. However, there was a persistent bitterness in the finish that got better, but did not disappear. I will try again in 1-2 years, definitely a 3 hour decant.
