    July 21, 2022 - Records not handy. Bought 12b case 17-18 years ago for less than 35/b, very likely from Sam's or Binny's; this is #3 or 4. Crumbly cork but extracted in one piece. Decanted with normal sediment for its age. Bit of amber hue to the otherwise purple color; mature blackcurrant, mature black plum that follow on the palate, good mouthfeel; some persistence. Noticeable fade two hours in. Solid performer from an underrated vintage; should hold well for at least a few more years and glad to have more. Stored horizontally in a cool, dark basement since purchase. Quality, price, age: Notable+.

    March 27, 2022 - Pleasing, savory, Cabernet-driven wine that shows its origin pretty well. In an ideal world it would have a little more depth and (especially) length, but at the right price it’s solid. Opened after 60 to 90 minutes of air. Nothing really tertiary yet, so no rush.

    March 22, 2022 - Really nice. Took about 2 hours to really peak. Big, rich, earthy, balanced.

    June 6, 2021 - excellent wine - a bit "dead" immidiately upon opening but got back on track....ready to go though but will (hopefully) last a few more years yet...

    May 1, 2021 - Beautiful blend of tertiary red/purple fruit, and strongly mineral finish. Fresh, with a healthy amount of tannin, and superbly portioned. Excellent drinking right now.
