    March 28, 2014 - This still had a nice fruit balance going on, definite dust from Ruth.
    All in all a tasty bottle.

    March 4, 2014 - fabulous taste/palate, with depth and no bite... very enjoyable... but absolutely zero nose, which is disappointing... good finish, but not as long as I would like .. because the nose is meaningful to me, I just can't score this any higher, and the QPR is lacking for such an expensive wine... seems to be peaking, so more age probably won't help

    February 22, 2014 - Do not hold any longer! This is not over the hill - but also not going to develop anything positive from here. Crowd pleasing, balanced Cabernet that should be opened this year.

    February 15, 2014 - Nice traditional mature cabernet with dark fruit, plum, leather and tobacco flavors and nice long finish

    December 15, 2013 - Finally came together! Waiting 10 years now for this which is really nice. Fruit has finally come forward. Perfectly mature aged Cabernet.
