    August 3, 2013 - Needed 90 minute decant. Port and raisin out of the bottle that burned off into a nice balanced wine with time. Still have one left, will not wait to open.

    June 23, 2012 - Decanted, after 4 hours opened up to be a classic cab, though not as powerful or rich as the 1995 we had last year.

    April 21, 2012 - Deep, deep cherry. Decanted for three hours ahead of first taste. Five hours in started to get a bit of cocoa. Minerals on the nose and taste, light and consistent. A hint oF eucalypus. The wine is past it's prime and I knew that at time of purchase. Great value for me but I would suggest that if you have the 1997, drink now.
