    August 13, 2017 - A nice, leaner style with great driving acidity and flavors of blackcurrant and red berries with a nice streak of minerality and some dusty sage-like herbs. Should age nicely for a while yet.

    August 6, 2017 - surprising that wine tasted a little tight w/ some tartness. wonder if it might do w/ even more time in the bottle. overall pleasing w/ berry and complex flavors.

    July 23, 2017 - All the right steps to make a great wine. Fruit pronounced and enjoyed it prior and during a dinner with grilled rib eye. Excellent made - peak time is now.

    June 11, 2017 - Second Sunday Group: Chateau Montelena Cabernet (Non-Estate) Vertical, 2005-2012 (Our house): Aromas of vanilla, red berries and black currants. Vanilla, clay, spice, cherry and currant flavors. Firm tannins. Vanilla finish. Oak takes center stage here.

    My #7, Domino's #6
