    January 19, 2018 - Coming together quite nicely. I gave it 88 pts. in 2013. Rich berries, soft edges, full bodied with toasty oak. Elegant.

    December 24, 2017 - Beautiful nose and complementary taste of blackberry and cranberry. Very nicely integrated balance of fruit, acid, oak, tannin and alcohol.
    Long and explosive finish.

    December 19, 2017 - Surprisingly fresh for 9 years old.Textbook WA cab, good acidity that stands up to fruit, oak is present but well integrated and muted. I would like to try this again in 5 years.
