    August 7, 2020 - This is a big extracted expression of a California Cab with some age on it. Deep ruby hint of garnet edge variation developing, pronounced aromas and flavors, nose of black fruits, medicinal, barnyard, and wood, palate is dry, fruits are tending stewed and jammy, black plum, bing cherry, black currant, eucalyptus, cedar, bit of forest floor funk, acidity is bright and supports the full body, black tea tannins. Alcohol leaves a bit of a burn on a long finish. If you have this in your cellar it still could have some time to develop. Nice!

    May 17, 2019 - After nearly 5 years from last enjoyment, what a treat. This is in a great spot with plenty of life left. Needs about an hour in the glass to open up

    March 30, 2019 - This 2008 held well in our cellar. Cherry and slightly spicy earth with mellowed tannins. Wonderful with a filet

    December 30, 2018 - Laid this bottle down for too long unfortunately. Decanted for 3+ hours but had clearly lost quite a bit of its flavor. Smooth on the palette but had no finish.
