    September 27, 2014 - Women in Wine - Mike G and Nola visit Cleveland; 9/27/2014-9/29/2014 (A Restaurant on Lee Road): Like many 99's, I found this to be drinking very well right now. I wouldn't hold these a lot longer, but if you like an aged Cab, at 15 years from vintage, this is drinking well. The nose has cassis and dust and slightly old oak/wood. Layers of complexity. Very balanced. Plenty of cassis left as well as some forest floor qualities. Food friendly.

    September 26, 2014 - Dark fruit, earth and an herbal note that's more pronounced on the palate than the nose. Balanced and drinking well now with integrated moderate tannins/acid.
