December 19, 2016 - OTBN - Drycab: Typical Cabernet Sauvignon aromatics with graphite, tar & cedar. Good mouthfeel with proper acidity to balance this with food. An extremely long finish that just keeps on going on and on with dark cherry rounding out the flavors. Very excellent.
This kicks 2005 & 2006 Bordeaux butt, likely due to the higher percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend IMO.1 person found this helpful Comment

November 6, 2016 - Not as good as last time. Granted, i did not decant this time. Seemed to have over-ripe fruit this time. Tart raspberries and orange peel. The earthiness and gun metal that i normally like from AW wines was gone and very little oak. Overall, the length, balance and tannins were enjoyable, but i had a hard time getting over the fruit bomb up front

January 1, 2016 - This started out a little flat just P & P. A couple hours later it had opened and was rich and deep with a gorgeous earthiness and a hint of wet cardboard that, oddly, enhanced its flavor profile. But, after dinner, 9 hours open, it was beautiful. Dark, earthy, black fruit, forest floor and altogether vibrant. Long finish. No flaws.2 people found this helpful Comment

November 28, 2015 - Needs a good two hour decant. Wonderful balance and structure. Deep, dark cherry and tart raspberries that at right up front. That mellowed as the night went on. Favors blended nicely with some time. Some oak but more minerals. Nice finish with still noticeable tannins. This could be great in another couple years.1 person found this helpful Comment
