    November 26, 2015 - Paired it with a balsamic marinated, espresso crusted tenderloin. Spectacularly perfect pairing! Dark fruit, powerful, but balanced and refined.

    January 5, 2015 - (from Magnum) Lovely wine. Rich, velvety with good balance. A big mouthful of Cabernet - drinking perfectly today. (94)

    October 3, 2014 - Nice mature cab with plum, tobacco, cedar and nice integration

    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
