    April 9, 2019 - Drank over two nights without decanting. A bit closed during the first one and deliciously open on the second.

    March 9, 2019 - I found this bottle hiding in the wine safe and thought what the heck. It is drinking well right now, and was delicious right away. Still has a firm tannic backbone with plum, cassis and some resiny briar notes. Cleary this is just beginning to enter it's drinking window, but I think the acidity and tannins still have yet to come into balance.

    October 2, 2018 - From a magnum. Initially very green, which dissipated as the wine opened. Rich, sweet stewed red fruit. Okay, admittedly not my kind of Cab., but oh that coconut was such an unfortunate component, distraction from the jammy fruit.

    July 16, 2018 - Very good but too early to drink. I think it needs to age another 3-6 years.

    June 2, 2018 - Continues to drink well. Amazed by the almost chocolate dark color and rich aroma. Silky broad first taste ending in a nice endless flavor end. Love it!
