    April 5, 2020 - Wine is still big and some grippy tannins. Would go another few years or a good 4 hour decant.

    December 25, 2019 - 2008 is drinking wonderfully right now. Awesome mix of red and dark fruit, balanced with just neigh tannin. This is my last bottle of the 08 and am happy I decided not to sit on it any longer as I think it is right where it needs to be. Enjoy!!

    November 29, 2019 - Medium garnet color. Medium bodied with cherry, raspberry and red plum on the palate. More of a tannic backbone than I would have expected from a 2008. A medium finish with a touch of astringency.

    October 26, 2019 - Going against other reviews, we think this is drinking quite well now. Big CA cab, still with a lot of dark fruit. Decanting for a few hours is optimal. Pairs wonderfully with a good wagyu steak.
