February 23, 2016 - Coravin #2. Just stellar. Dark chocolate, oak, blackberry, raspberry. Tobacco. Leather. Always underrated. Always a treat.

February 12, 2016 - I will admit to having a favorable bias to Lewis's wines, particularly the cabs. Opened this with a group of friends that we don't get to see often enough and the 2005 reserve was a star. Smooth tannins, deep and brooding dark fruit, hints of mocha, and a finish to savor.

February 5, 2016 - Black fruits, some graphite and cedar spice, grilled meat. I feel this is at its peak not too old, but not going to get any better with time.

July 8, 2015 - Even better than the last one a few months ago, and the wife loved it this time too. Maybe bottle variation? Plenty of life left in it, still a little tannic.
