    December 16, 2016 - Decanted thru a venturi then let sit for about 2 hours. Maybe my taste was off because there were about 20 different cabs and nothing really tasted great--even a bottle of overture, which I have had in the past and really liked. Thought this was ok but nothing special. Just didn't do it for me.

    November 28, 2016 - A M A Z I N G wine! Decanted for a couple of hours and served with appetizers before Thanksgiving dinner. I am thankful that I have 2 more bottles.

    November 24, 2016 - From Magnum, purchased on released. Waited a long time to try these. First of two. Decent wine with some tannin left. Not worth the price. I would wait another two years before I opened another. I enjoyed it but expected more.

    October 8, 2016 - Reminiscent of fruity right bank Bordeaux. Toasted oak, coffee, black cherry. Too sweet.
