    January 25, 2017 - We have enjoyed a lot of O'Shaughnessy cab's over the years. This bottle was muted (both the nose and a taste) on the open (it was bottle decanted for a couple of hours and then poured in a decanter for 2 more hours). It was closed and never came close to expressing the flavor profile of an O'Shaughnessy cab. Whether the bottle was just an outlier or the wine needs a few more years of cellaring remains to be seen. This was our first 2011 we have opened. Based on other scores, it might have been just one of those bottles!

    November 22, 2016 - Excellent wine. Let breathe for 2 hours prior to drinking. Full bodied with a long finish. Lots of dark fruits on the palate. This one is definitely ready now, but will certainly continue to age well for the next few years.

    November 4, 2016 - Surprisingly good for a 2011 and superior to the 2011 Howell Mountain. Shows a lot of the typical characteristics that this wine always shows, just in a lighter weight, less voluminous package. It may improve but no need to wait. Pretty good upon opening but improved with a 3 hour decant.

    July 23, 2016 - Opens with notes of black fruit, cassis, herbs and violets. Cassis, pepper, vanilla, black fruit and spice on the palate showing just a bit hot in the finish. Full-bodied and balanced. Guessed Napa Cab.
