    May 14, 2014 - Dense workmanlike Cab. Good quality, balance. Chocolate, dark fruit, dust, coffee, spice, decent acidity and finish. I'm impressed with its relative restraint -- especially on the oak front -- but not overly exciting. More about what it isn't over what it is.

    July 29, 2013 - pleasantly surprised in that this was definitely better than my previous tasting; age is helping this wine ALOT: much of the fruit has started to come forward, palate has become more full and finish has mellowed significantly... one of the best under $20 I have had in awhile, but clearly this is only the case because it has been in the cellar... I think it will continue to improve in the next few years

    March 25, 2013 - Very good fruit-forward nose with some oak peaking through. Good solid mouthfeel with smooth-focused finish.
