    December 30, 2013 - Coravin-ed two samples, but that was a waste because it turned out to be badly corked. Was going to do side by side with 1995, which was still pretty nice though fading.

    January 12, 2013 - David White comes to town (Domaine Wine Storage and Sun-Wah BBQ, Chicago IL): Nose: Nice and balanced nose with tones of cedar, mint, dark red cherries, and cassis tones. There is solid depth on the nose with a polished quality to the tones.

    Taste: Very well balanced medium body with smooth tannins and medium acidity. The tones of cedar, tobacco, mint, cassis, and dark red cherries blend well together.

    Overall: This was showing very well. A quality mature Cali Cab that is drinking at it's best right now.

    December 5, 2012 - Preparing to take this to a party, my wife dropped it and broke it -- 80% of it ended up splattered on the countertop. I did manage to drink up the remaining 20%, which was quite good, but it wasn't how I wanted to enjoy the wine.
