February 13, 2016 - As has been noted, the cork was dry rotted, but the wine was not spoiled with a good amount of sediment. Decent dark purple color with a slight hint of bricking. Dark ripe fruit, raisin, stewed prunes, and cassis. A good cab that may be near or borderline peaking. I have been drinking Cabs that have been showing big with good extraction, the 2013 Napa Cabs in particular and I hope that I'm not getting spoiled, but this one is a little thin by comparison. None the less a good wine.

November 24, 2015 - Fantastic - amazing, off-the-charts aromatics - full-bodied and flavorful, agree with other tasting notes. Left about 1/3 of the bottle for the next night, but it fell apart - so time to drink up ...

August 22, 2015 - Last bottle from my cellar. 6th tasting with consistent notes. As with other bottles, cork was dry rotted, but the wine was not spoiled. Large amount of small to fine sediment. Dark, rich fruit flavors, nice smokiness. Excellent example of the 2007 vintage and a truly awesome wine at the price point. Sorry to see it go. Buy it if you see it.

May 8, 2015 - Multiple tastings with consistent notes. Unlike my previous bottles, the cork was sound. Moderate amount of medium sediment. Spent about an hour in the decanter, then drank over the next 24. Strong fruit flavors, plums. Big aromatics, tar, smoked meat. This is an impressive wine at this price point.

May 4, 2015 - Last bottle. Notes consistent with last time. Right on the money. I wanted to wait to open this but couldn't.
