    March 15, 2014 - Nice medium body cab. Don't think I would get this one again. Decent wine but nothing special.
    Good nose, light body, not much of an aftertaste.

    March 17, 2013 - I opened the bottle and let stand in the bottle for 3 hours, and then had it with roast lamb. There were some Pinot Noir type notes, but very much reduced compared to my previous impressions. There was more Cab varietal flavor. Overall this was very good, but I think it's still a bit young. If drinking now, I'd recommend decanting for an hour or so.

    June 23, 2012 - Very good for the price. Needs 20 minutes (in the bottle) before it's drinkable. Very little on the nose--mostly oak and alcohol. Cherry and plum on the palette with very nice acidity on the finish.

    March 22, 2012 - Dense and full bodied, ripe red fruit and jammy aromas. Powerful fruit on entry, just a hint of oak, but lacking much structure. Short finish with only moderate tannins. Held up to a plate of spicy grilled shrimp and ratatouille over grits. Decent friendly cab at a reasonable price. Drink 2012-2016.

    March 2, 2012 - I really liked this wine, but I had to mark it down because it seems out of style for a Cab - if I disregard style guidelines I could probably go for 88. The predominant flavor is a spiciness that really seems like Pinot Noir, but it's much heavier than that. I would call this (in taste) in between Cab and Pinot Noir, which is something I've never encountered before. It was ok to pop and pour and seemed on balance nicer after half the bottle spent 24 hours under vacuvin. So if you like both Cab and Pinot Noir, you definitely should try this.
