    September 3, 2019 - Drank for hurricane Dorian evening. Decanted for two hours (suggest decant since substantial sediment). This is beautifully integrated now and should last for a number of years. Berries and currants, with a touch of spice. Tannins are subdued. Medium finish.

    July 9, 2019 - 1 hour decant. Ruby red, full bodied, chocolate cocoa, coffee, subtle tannins, and drinking beautifully. 95-96

    June 18, 2019 - 67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Cabernet Franc, 8% Merlot & 3% Petit Verdot. 14.5% ABV. I let it breathe for 45 minutes then drank over 2 hours. Really needed a full 2 hours out of the bottle. Drinking beautifully. Sweet, perfumed nose. Lots of pure, ripe fruit, with a long, juicy finish. Perfect acidity level. I suppose you can wait but not really necessary. As good on day 2.
