Drinking well. Nice fruit forward nose, medium long finish. Very little tannin, can age some more, but drinking now. Had with a Ribeye and paired beautifully.

Drinking well now. Must decant, has a lot of sediment in the bottle and I had to use a coffee filter. Very, very good.

Drinking very well right now. My advice is drink up what you have in your cellar. Went well with a NY strip steak!

Dark red almost purple. You need to decant this wine, some sediment. Wine has many years of life in it still, but can drink. Drinks well now, dark fruits, cassis, hint of mint. Nice long finish, very nice wine. Wish I had more....

Last one. Had with NY strip, outstanding. No tannin, great balance, very dark in the glass. Think wine is at peak and would recommend drinking over next year or two. Rich dark fruit taste. Very nice

Had for New Years with prime ribeye steaks. Wine needs at least an hour decant. Wine is ready to drink, great fruit a bit of spice, full bodied and some darker fruit overtones. I developed more appreciation for Merlot heavy blends from this wine. Excellent wine, sad it is my one and only bottle.

Had for Christmas with beef tenderloin. Eucalyptus and cassis nose. Decanted an hour and was ready to drink. A bit of tannin, I felt drinking now, but couldn't wait a few more years if you choose. Very long finish. An excellent wine enjoyed by all.

Outstanding, de ante for an hour plus. Rich, cassis, nice balance of tannin and fruit. I thought the CA Cabernet dominated. Has some life left, but drinking well now. One bottle left, I should have bought more!

Very nice Christmas Eve wine. Red fruit nose, bit jammy, rich taste with little tannin. Drinking now, did add some complexity after sitting an hour or so. Not as large as other CNP's, but very nice.
