    January 14, 2015 - This wine was less than expected. Nothing particularly wrong but didn't overwhelm either. Definitely ready to drink with little structure left for aging.

    November 15, 2014 - Rich, structured Cabernet with active yet smooth tannins. Very nice dark fruit with powerful notes of tobacco, mint and chocolate. Must decant for at least an hour to fully enjoy this wine and expect it to develop over the next 10 years.

    September 19, 2014 - Friday Night Double Blind Tasting $40+ (Bin 75): Dark core with thin bright garnet rim; classic old school Cabernet- Napa, green pepper, ripe cassis, anise, slight weedy eucalyptus note; dark berry, cassis, cedar, ripe and spicy, nice structure; good; called wine but missed vintage.
