    July 27, 2014 - Decanted for a few hours. Classic cab, well rounded, great nose and mouthfeel. Enjoyed with steak dinner. Great QPR for a top flight cab. Drink now or hold for several more years. VERY GOOD.

    March 13, 2014 - Not as good as last time. Good fruit, smooth tannins, but a wee bit of overly high alcohol on the finish. GOOD.

    August 3, 2013 - Very nice wine. Splash decanted. Musty nose that cleared to nice medium bodied fruit. This has several years left on it - wife loves it. Recommend. VERY GOOD.

    April 11, 2013 - Second tasting with similar notes. Pop & pour, minimal sediment. Nice fruit flavors, touch of field flowers. Kept about half a bottle in the decanter over night, did not fair so well the next day, strange aroma of raw egg. Even so, a strong effort, and I somewhat discount this day 2 effect. I've noticed that some wines don't do well overnight in the decanter, while others (notably, Seavey) almost require it.
