    August 6, 2014 - The tale of two wines. Upon opening, it was very nice. Still plenty of freshness surrounding cassis, leather, dusty soil, and black cherry. After about 2 hours it became undrinkable due to brettanomyces. So, the first part of the wine was a 90, the latter an 80, and that's being generous.

    April 16, 2013 - A positive surprise. More mature/tertiary notes on the nose than on the palate. Wonderful ripe and sweet blackcurrant but plenty of balancing acidity and fine mellow tannins. Smokey and jammy notes reveals age. The ripe fruit lingers a very long time - impressive throughout. Drinking perfectly now but if you have plenty there is no rush.

    July 30, 2012 - My only real regret is that I have only one more to drink. Seriously great old cab. All the secondary and tertiery flavors were there. The green is gone. The fruit and tannins in balance. Not a faded beauty, a beautifully aged beauty.

    March 20, 2011 - Still going strong. Lovely mature notes and even fairly tannic still. Nose is of stewed plums (in the best possible way). Palate is fine powdered and persistent. A good dose of acidity too. It's never going to mistaken for a great wine, or even an easy one, but I really enjoyed it.
