    November 27, 2019 - Tasted with erter99 and friends in Nashville TN, this was consensus WOTN. Tasted along with '85 Leoville Las Cases , 2005 Cos de Estournel, and a '97 St Emillion. Great Cabernet nose and a surprisingly fresh palate still brimming with California fruit. Tannin totally resolved. Good acidity and finish. This well balanced wine has the stuffing to go on several more years, but I expect no improvement. Drink now if you have some.

    June 24, 2017 - From magnum - A savory mix of bell pepper, dark cherry and black currant fruit, and a compelling meatiness on the finish, supported by tongue-prickling acidity and tannin, it has definitely hit its peak but isn't at all in decline. Magnificent.

    November 23, 2015 - The last of 3 from auction and the best of this lot. Fill just into the neck and a nice firm cork. Surprisingly dark color. This is a perfect ringer for Bordeaux, with nice cedar and a hint of Cabernet green. Fairly long, with smooth tannins. At peak, this bottle would hold for a bit.

    May 27, 2015 - Lovely, integrated, old-school cabernet. Smokey, earthy, Bordeaux style profile with a smooth, silky palate and the tannins all melted away. There is abundant acidity on the attack, with the fruit in second, this shows better with food. Hanging in there and very enjoyable, but not especially deep or nuanced. Drink 'em if ya got 'em.
