    January 15, 2017 - This is a very good bottle of wine. I would suggest decanting and letting it air out for over an hour.
    The issue with the rating is the quality vs. the price.
    The other thing that has become a bit of a recurring theme is the quality of the California 2007 cabernets and blends. We started collecting more seriously after the ratings for the 2007 vintage. We made a point of storing them to let them properly age.
    In the last year or so, as they approached 10 years, we have started to drink the 2007's. We had extremely high expectations for the vintage. We have consistently not been "wow'ed".

    December 12, 2016 - Pop and pour. Very nice with and without good. Which was surprising for a cab. Really nice balance.

    October 20, 2016 - Extremely smooth and wonderful to drink with and without food. Everything you would hope for from a 2007 free run wine.
