Little disappointing you found this less than stellar as I have been looking forward to opening one of these (have been drinking the ‘14 which for a poor vintage is over delivering at the price point), do you feel this is under delivering because it needs time/weird spot or just not as well made as other vintages? Thank you for your input.

    11/29/21, 4:48 PM - In response to LiteItOnFire: You are probably correct, and I may have under rated this wine. It probably was a result of having a stellar cab prior to opening this half bottle. The difference in style and not giving this wine a chance to breathe may have resulted in an unfair review. I wish I had more to give it a second chance. Be interested to see your interpretation.
