    October 25, 2015 - Omg! Our cork crumbled as well. Seemed defective although no leakage.
    Wine opened up big quickly.
    A bit green on the initial nose but good bacon, tobacco and truffle palate leading to a slightly chalky high alcohol finish.
    Drink now and let it evolve in the glass directly from the bottle.

    August 19, 2015 - Classic Napa Cabernet. Decanted for 1 hour. Cork crumbled and might have been 93+ had it been intact.

    November 16, 2014 - Phenomenal. Needs 20-30 minutes to open up, and then it's wonderful...wow.

    February 5, 2013 - Decanted off its sediment & rebottled. Faded crimson red color with aromas of mint, black currants, leather, violets and other florals. Balanced and nicely integrated, featuring flavors of red fruit, florals and sandalwood. 92+ pts.
