    September 14, 2014 - Very nicely aged wine with tannins that are beautifully integrated and balanced with just the right amount of fruit. This is not a "fruit bomb", this is a 100% classic Sonoma Cabernet structured in a Bordeaux style. Reached its peak and likely will hold at it for another 3-4 years. Long finish. Paired well with beef wellington. I'm really glad I have 4 more bottles.

    August 17, 2013 - Didn't quite work for me; lacking much complexity or interest, and getting a bit astringent after 10 years.

    April 27, 2012 - At 9 years old still quite a mouth full. Should age for years to come, plenty of tannins left. Berries on the nose, deep dark red hue. Requires a knife and fork to cut through. Not my cup of tea.

    March 12, 2012 - 1 hr decant. Expressive nose of blackberry, plums, spicy oak and sweet tobacco. Medium body of black currants, blackberry, vanilla bean, graphite and cocoa. Medium plus smooth finish.
