    December 1, 2013 - As good a glass of pure cab as I've had. Had last night with grilled steak.
    Juicy, yummy wow. Really soft, rich mouthful. Full of dark juicy blackberry mocha flavor. Dark in color. Young. Definitely plenty of life left. Beautiful.

    November 28, 2013 - Wow! What a difference 2 years in bottle makes! Please disregard my last note regarding this wine! Man this in incredible! Road tar, pencil shavings, herbs, black cherry and raspberry. Perfectly resolved with zero hard edges. Seamless! Still in shock...so there is hope for Cali cab!!!

    August 16, 2013 - Very smooth. Very big, loads of flavors. Refined. Decanted about an hour and was singing from the first sip. This is fantastic wine. Not showing any signs of age - in a great spot.

    June 7, 2013 - Based on other CT notes I expected to love this but did not. We opened at a restaurant and decanted about 30-45 minutes prior to drinking. Perhaps it needed longer decant because it did seem to improve. However, it lacked complexity. It seemed there was not enough fruit left to balance out the tannin. We had the Kayli Morgan 2005 a couple of years ago and thought it was great. Will need to try both again.
