    November 26, 2016 - I don't know what everyone else is drinking, but wow, A+. This wine was probably in the top 3 or 4 wines I've ever had. It was tough to get into the glass though! Opened it, cork fell in. Poured through coffee filter, and I must say, it was still excellent. Dark garnet in the glass. Nose of earth, spice, and currant. Strong legs. Lots of structure in the body. The wine has a weight on the palate that is simply satisfying, and smooth. Flavors of currant, vanilla, and tobacco with emulsifying tannins that flow into a soft lingering medium-long smooth finish. This wine was spectacular. It might have a few years left in the cellar, but the corks might not. Drink this Christmas or with a roast with friends. Drink up!
    10/10 would drink again.

    February 10, 2014 - Tasted blind: Nose of tar and currant. Everything is a bit one dimensional and short. Overall a good wine, nicely balanced and very enjoyable but just a bit on the light side. Drink now

    August 23, 2009 - Nice as all the Nickel and Nickel Cabs are. Great Howell Mtn. fruit. Definitely peaking. Would not hold on to much longer than a year.
