    August 24, 2015 - Very nice. Plenty of tanins left. Could get better yet.

    November 30, 2013 - took a magnum to dinner at Cafe Napoli in St. Louis, MO. Wow. We were discussing the age-ability of Cali Cabs, and then we opened this.
    Spectacular. Dark, viscous, rich. Perfect tannins and silky mouthfeel. Dried dark fruits, spice, leather and chocolate. long long finish and had the dinner crowd buzzing.

    May 26, 2013 - Drinking perfectly right now. This bottle did not quite live up to the promise tasted upon release, but it was still very good juice.

    October 19, 2012 - The nose was dark and inviting with black currant, dusty cocoa, lavender and cherry liquor. On the palate, it was smooth with an acidic spine providing great textural diversity. Dark fruit dominated with a bit of an herbal quality, yet something seemed to be missing on the mid-palate. The finish was long and staying with a hint of resolved tannin lingering along with the flavor of dried berries. All-in-all, this is a beautiful wine.
