    January 5, 2021 - A bit on the "bright" side. The Cab Sauv fruit appears to be submerged.

    December 14, 2020 - P&P. Showing well, this was served after a lot of wine that was in front of it, so a little fuzzy on the details. Enjoyed by all and it did seem ready to go.

    May 3, 2020 - Perfect cork, slight bricking. Decanted 1 hour. Classically yummy high-end Washington blend. Appealing mix of sweet fruits and darker flavors like graphite licorice. Tannins a little grippy but nicely integrated. In a good spot but should hold for 3-5 years.

    April 19, 2020 - Sat on this one a while.. and it was sooo worth it. Easter dinner red and just so enjoyable to sip on its own. Fruit and alcohol have harmonized. I would encourage to drink now. Fruit is there, but softer than the last bottle I had a few years ago.

    April 2, 2020 - This was my last bottle of this vintage. The cork was okay but the wine had an aroma that told me it was past its prime. I double decanted the bottle and the initial taste was slightly off. I'm not sure what was the cause. We drank part of the bottle over two days to see if it improved. it didn't and I dumped the remainder. Too bad as the bottle had been purchased on release, stored properly and the cork seemed okay. Its sad but I'm starting to get concerned about some of these older Andrew Wills.
