September 28, 2014 - Blackberry, pepper, some leather and even a bit of lemon. Strong alcohol on the finish.

August 23, 2014 - Followed over 3 hours after 1-hour decant. Lucent ruby appearance. Elegant, restrained, and reticent bouquet of black raspberries, pencil shavings, flowers, herbs, and licorice on a bed of red fruit. Classic and old school, this is polished and beautifully structured, with a dry, youthful profile and outstanding length. Ever evolving it never revealed its full and glorious potential, saving its best for a long life ahead.1 person found this helpful Comment

August 21, 2014 - Nice cali cab. Lacking some depth and concentration. Mid weight and decent structure. There are others cabs in this price range which are much better but still good. Decent 10-12 second finish with some tannins. Didn't do much on the back end but pleasant up front.

June 28, 2014 - Decanted 2 hours. Textbook Cabernet notes of red cassis, graphite, and Napa herbs. Restrained, medium-bodied palate, classic style with subtle oak, good acidity but not austere, then youthful tannins on the finish. This will benefit from a few more years. Drink 2016-2021. 92+1 person found this helpful Comment
