    April 19, 2017 - 2 hr decant. Blackberry, plum, spice box, pepper, smoke, and just a hint of bell pepper. Full bodied but not overripe.

    January 24, 2016 - Served blind. This was WOTN at our table. Exceptionally made. Very approachable right now after a 4 hour decant. Rich round tannins. Very balanced and drinking incredibly well.

    January 20, 2016 - Served blind, this was WOTN at the table, and my WOTN. Extremely balanced, we were guessing Mondavi Reserve. I guess it's in the same league. Lingering acidic finish, savory bell pepper. Not flashy, just put together really well.

    February 12, 2015 - Nice cabernet with soft tannins and moderate structure. Fruit a bit muted and frankly I expected more from this wine.
