    February 21, 2014 - Wow! This is coming into its own all of a sudden. Opening up nicely and releasing lots of dark chewy fruit while keeping the nice tannic backbone.

    August 27, 2013 - Not as in the pocket as the 2002, yet still coming around. And a great wine. And incredibly cheap for what is in the bottle.

    August 17, 2013 - First cabernet from the Zalto Universal. Very pronounced on the nose, wild and constantly changing too. Must be from just opening. Hopefully it will calm down.

    April 17, 2012 - Pungent spice, oak, kirsch and sweet berry scent. Full, red cherry and currant, mint, ash and mineral flavor with full, grippy tannins and a long finish. Somewhat tight mid palate and on the finish. Four years since the last tasting did not subdue the powerful tannins. That said, it was quite enjoyable. This wine has the structure to age many more years.

    December 18, 2011 - This was a pleasant surprise. A long, complex finish with tannic grip to age for another 10 years. Cassis, black cherry, chocolate, truffle, and an iron/mineral/rock component. Stylistically, I'd say this is mostly New World with Old World restraint. Definitely recommended.
