    August 24, 2021 - Unlike with the most recent previous bottle, I was able to let this one breathe for about two hours before tasting it. Even after two hours, the nose screamed "sheep barn", but that gradually blew off after another thirty minutes or so. On the palate, it was chocolate covered cherries, which I consider to be a good thing. Fairly rich and a pretty good finish. Seemed a little tired, which ordinarily would suggest that it's past its peak. With this wine, however, it may be in one of its valleys and approaching another peak. If I had any more (which I don't), I'd be tempted to hold off for another couple years - just to see what happens.

    August 17, 2021 - Consistent with my notes from 3 years ago. Such richness and depth, incredible cab. And still going...maybe 2-3 years of prime drinking. Awesome stuff....

    May 29, 2021 - These damned things show extreme bottle variation and/or multiple peaks and valleys (dumb phases). This one was somewhere in between - not bad, but my socks are still on. Earthiness on the nose overshadowed the fruit. Better balance on the palate, but still earthier than I prefer. The fruit was almost exclusively red cherries, but it was somewhat subdued. Nice rich texture and a solid finish. Still reasonably tannic, so it may have a few years left, unless the fruit disappears altogether. Unless it's next week, I'm guessing my next bottle will either be a religious experience or DOA.

    December 31, 2020 - I am so sorry to read some of the prior notes on this wine because I wish those tasters could have shared this bottle. One of the best bottles of wine I've had all year and delighted to have washed out the taste of a horrible year with the rich complex aromas and flavors from one of Washington's best vineyards. Decanted about 2 hours before drinking and throwing a lot of sediment, the wine was still deeply colored with little rim variation. Blueberry compote, cassis, black cherry, and a whiff of cedar kept unfolding as it dwindled in the decanter and expanded and echoed those flavors in my mouth. Absolutely at its peak with barrel notes and tannins almost completely resolved. Rich long finish. Points off perfect for lower than ideal acidity. Purchased at auction for $40 making it an unbelievable bargain.

    January 4, 2020 - Bottle had some notes of acetone, seemed to be a faulty one (bottle variations?)
