    May 8, 2019 - This was a very good wine, but has mellowed from past experiences. Excellent dark fruit, but not rich, or with distinguishable nose as previously noted.

    August 11, 2018 - A winner! Just a good juice with so much action on the nose that you can smell it from across the table. Good balance as the heat is gone. Drink now with 30 minutes decanting.

    March 13, 2018 - Fabulous bottle. Cork fell apart on me but thank God the juice inside was still intact! 2 hours of slow ox and drank over next three hours. Great nose of ripe black cherry, hint of sweet cinnamon. Unbelievable taste and finish that stung my tongue in a delicious way for 45 seconds. It was my only bottle but I just located 5 more and I can't wait to revisit this wine.

    February 14, 2018 - Decanted and drank over about an hour. I thought this was a really nice wine that is in a good state right now. It has all the ripeness and juiciness of a Napa cab, but with the acidity I'd expect in something from France or Italy. It is showing some signs of aging, with smooth tannins and some secondary flavors, but the richness and vanilla that is typical of Napa is there. I would not say it is particularly complex, but it is still quite enjoyable.

    March 12, 2017 - Big, dark fruit and actually more intense than my last note. Complex, but not as smooth and balanced as I expected.
