December 20, 2014 - Good balanced Cab. Not a big wine. Medium tannins, slightly muted black fruit. Definitely ready to drink.

October 26, 2014 - While this Cab has a nose that is muted, this wine has big, bold dark fruit falvor with notes of pepper, licorice and crushed rocks. Really nice structure but the wine is not very expressive, almost drinking like an old world Bordeaux. Having said all that, this is still an excellent Cab but not for the fruit forward, concentrated, new world crowd.

October 18, 2014 - Tasted single blind. Tasted several times over 3-4 hours. I called this stripped overall but there were some interesting briny, savory and pepper notes. Little fruit character and limited finish. It was my entry into a blind tasting and was a let down. Purchased on release and stored in a wine chiller.

September 13, 2014 - Brought 4 bottles to a dinner. The wine is just past peak. Still drinking nicely. Has the softer, less fruity older wine earthen flavor.
