    July 2, 2020 - It's been 2+ years since I drank this wonderful wine. Dense dark fruit, cedar, beautifully balanced with long satisfying finish. Paired with grilled veal chops with port wine reduction sauce - heavenly!

    June 21, 2020 - Served blind
    Deep dense purple with just a hint of lightening at the edge.
    Pure dark fruit, but with such an incredible balanced lightness throughout.
    Really quite remarkable stuff.
    Clearly cali cab and consistent with sweet 2008 vintage.
    Lovely now

    May 27, 2020 - Very silky, fruit is ripe but restrained -- this definitely drinking in its prime right now but surely has a few good years left. Not a massive cali cab, this is bit lighter and more elegant.

    April 25, 2020 - Definitely cherry and bay leaf on the nose. Smooth red berry on tasting mild spice excellent and ready to go. Will last for several more years

    January 24, 2020 - excellent. good core of cherry/brighter red fruit with some bay leaf/tobacco hints. Medium+ body, but def not a monstrous CA beast like some CA cabs i've had. a terrific pairing with a rib eye. decanted for one hour +.
