    Funk on nose blown off, now muted. A nice sweetness on finish...Much more interesting today.

Open for biz like many of the 99s I’ve had the last couple yrs...sweet nose, with classic left bank mid palate and finish...out of mag, hitting on all cylinders...

This was a real treat. Absolutely sublime. Makes me really wonder what people talk about when they say Cali cabs, one dimensional.

Not impressed...Sat open in btl for a few hrs and while it improved in glass some, just not my cup of tea...

Last btl...1.5hr decant, paired w/stuffed pork tenderloin...This was my best experience in the last few I've had with this wine...nose was expressive and there was still some fruit in there...I filtered right out of btl, catching some debris in initial pour...can't wait to see what's in the bottom half...
