    February 6, 2017 - Sweet aromas of black cherry fruits. Rich sweet chewy tannins. Mouth filling and large scale yet tons of spices. Very good. Out of mag. Yummy. Long life ahead

    February 5, 2017 - From magnum. Nose is a bit shy with some awkward high toned fruit. The palate on the other hand is in a terrific place. Classic, chunky plummy cab fruit with cedar, tobacco and bell pepper complexity. Firm, chewy tannin in the backend to remind you this still has a long life.

    February 5, 2017 - Good Wine with an Exciting Super Bowl (Chez Kailin - Northbrook IL): Black currant and cherry, more robust on palate than on the nose. Very well balanced, very good now, but this might even have upside from here.

    January 12, 2017 - First one of these in 11 months. Now down to my last two bottles from a half case. Brought with us to Vintage on Fifth, Crystal River ($15 corkage). Was poured into a decanter and sat for about 25 minutes while we enjoyed a Prosecco aperatif. Still very young-looking in the glass. No amber or bricking at all, and almost no lightening at the edge. Very powerful and complex on the nose. Gorgeous aromas of crushed, dark fruits, spice, cigar box and earth. Full-bodied, now mature and noticeably more elegant than previous bottles. Much more Bordeaux-like in character, now that its delicious plum, blackberry and dark currant fruit has faded. Beautifully balanced, with a moderate acidity that perfectly complements its subtle, remaining fruit. Shows good depth and intensity, without excessive concentration or weight. Finishes very long and incredibly smooth, with velvety tannins that linger gently. This is so polished and refined. A wonderful Mondavi Reserve Cabernet that may be slightly past its peak, but is still drinking very nicely.

    January 7, 2017 - 2 hr decant. Oak and tannins have integrated nicely. Earth, mineral notes, mixed very nicely with black fruit. Lots of structure. Still some cellar life left, but ready to go now. Threw off a hefty amount of sediment.
