    February 1, 2018 - Really fantastic after it had been open for about 48 hours. It had an amazing kirsch liqueur smoothness richness that I absolutely love. Some good high tones, really round long wine! No hard edges. Gorgeous.

    March 5, 2016 - Notes of cherry and currants with herbal overtones. Medium-bodied with flavors of red berry fruit. Tannins are integrating nicely. Well-balanced with a medium+ finish. Popped & poured and drinking nicely.

    November 16, 2015 - Popped and poured. I guess some additional bottle time has helped this wine integrate a bit. A combination of black and dark red fruit notes on the nose with a hint of pyrazine and some toasted oak notes. Similar flavors on the palate with medium+ acid and tannins and a juicy mouthfeel. A bit simple but food friendly and somewhat easy drinking for cabernet.

    October 9, 2014 - Dark, ripe fruit on the nose with a bit of spice and oak coming through. Similar flavors on the palate with a ripe and juicy mouthfeel and a slightly sweet finish. Some sweet tannins but definitely on the mild side and a bit of vanilla oak on the back end. Smooth finish. A very tasty and drinkable cab that was enjoyed by most of my party but a bit too ripe and not as structured as I would like.
