    December 28, 2014 - We decanted the wine for 90 minutes and drank it over a period of another two hours. It was intense dark ruby in colour and threw a lot of fine sediment. The wine offered a tight, complex nose of dark fruit, black currant, cherry, peapod, gherkin, chocolate, mint and liquorice, complicated by hints of bell pepper and leafy tobacco. On the palate the wine showed black currant, cherry, gherkin, chocolate, coffee, spices, liquorice and a hint of tobacco leaf, paired with medium-plus acidity, fine, medium-plus tannin and very good length. The full-bodied wine dipped a little in the third quarter and then came back for a long and full finish. A balanced, dense, reserved Cabernet that showed best after two hours in the decanter. Start drinking from 2016.

    December 25, 2014 - (Coravin = 4oz) + 2 hour decant = same NR rating as July of this year. This wine is a deep, dark beast of a wine that is still on the way up. WAY WAY WAY not ready to be enjoyed yet unless you have all day to decant (and even then, nothing can really replace years in the bottle!). Consumed 2 hours after pouring, this one was tasted against a 2010 Caymus Special Selection and a 2007 Silver Oak Alexander Valley and tied the Caymus SS (blew the Silver Oak away).

    December 7, 2014 - A very nice fruit forward Cabernet . Lots of black fruit on the nose and in the taste profile. This is a very lush wine and it's bold too. I know it is a Sonoma cab but it rivals some of the more expensive Napa
