    November 17, 2019 - Decanted 1 Hour before serving. Rich, bold, dark fruit flavors mixed with a dusty base of soft tannins. Mellowed the longer it was in the glass. Excellent long finish that accentuated the fruit profile with a touch of pepper spice that lingered on and on. We held this bottle for just over 10 years and it was certainly worth the wait.

    September 26, 2019 - Pw/1 hr glass time. Clear, deep dark purple. Wonderful, powerful nose. This needed a lot a air time before it opened up. Initially super tight and rugged. With time, it softened a bit and drank beautifully. Dark fruit, very intense flavor, prominent tannin's but not overly so. Dusty, dry, rich, full bodied with long finish. At the front end of it's drinking window and can stand another 5 years of cellaring. Nothing off. $50

    September 17, 2019 - As I recall, this was a Wine Spectator (Speculator?) wine of the year a while back. I was told an entire case was allocated to Alabama and I got one bottle. Drank it the other day. It was good but certainly not a wine epiphany experience. Just a solid Bordeaux-like wine with good Cali fruit.

    February 5, 2019 - - Garnet color and aromas of tea. It's somewhat balanced and has flavours of blackberry and black currant with a medium/full body. Round texture with a short finish.

    September 3, 2018 - Notes similar to last (in 2016). This is in a great drinking window right now. Complex, well integrated, with a lingering finish. Drank this one back-to-back with a 2012 Charles Woodson Cab, and the Cinq Cepages blew the Cab away.
