May 23, 2014 - Kathy and I tasted side by side with the 2009 at Silver Oak thanks to Tom. Nose of dark cherry fruit, hints of dust, oak, and cassis, more of the same on the palate, medium body, rich and time to drink up, medium body and long finish.

April 20, 2014 - Big nose of coconut mint oaky nose with some dark cherries, chocolate and sweet spices. This wine is quite unbalance at the beginning with noticable of alcohol. After 2 hrs, it is more enjoyable. Tannin is dusty and rounded with a lot of dark fruits, liquorice, dark chocolate and mint flavours. Length is only medium with dry and liquorice finish. Price is quite reasonable, only HK$260.

February 22, 2013 - Wow - this wine is hummin' after 11 years...rich, deep nose followed by a lush palate and broad swath of flavors. Initially a big dollop of chocolate, then mellowed over time. Six hours in (post-decant) it is full-bodied and clickin' on all cylinders. Definitely not shy on the oak even now, but still balanced (in a big way). Many aspire to this level of Napa Merlot, few achieve...
