    October 9, 2021 - Drank side by side with a 96 Calon Segur. Interesting to try the Cali wines which take the old world influence. This is very restrained for Cali, but next to the CS it's just jumping out of the glass. Lots of fruit. All more restrained in style, but still very much there. Drinking nicely and while the CS kindof opened up in the glass this settled down. Both very tasty.

    February 6, 2021 - Very aromatic with lots of tobacco, cedar, other spices... Similar tobacco-dominated spicy notes on the palate mixed with ripe blackberry. Long finish. It greatly improves with decanting and is drinking great now still showing some structure with mostly integrated tannins, but I don't see a point in aging it any longer

    January 26, 2021 - Single blind tasting
    Garnet with some bricking
    Aromatics medium +. Spice/black pepper, blue fruit followed by green bell pepper.
    Palate medium. Acid medium. Tannins medium +, fine on teeth and gums. Alcohol medium +. Black fruit, raisin and olives
    Finish has medium + length. Balanced
    Dry glass notes of spice, cranberry, tobacco, coffee and tomato.
    Interesting, multi dimensional aged California Cabernet
    Drinking well now

    January 25, 2021 - Dark ruby, almost opaque color with minimal bricking
    Cork intact - saturated approx 80% length
    Medium plus gorgeous aromas of blue/ black fruit and green pepper with graphite/ dry earth elements and a light touch of oak remaining
    Just amazing - really more Bordeaux-like than any California Cab I have experienced
    Fantastic and rather explosive palate of red and black fruit
    Medium plus fine grained and well integrated tannins with medium acidity and alcohol - Finish is extraordinary - 30-60 secs
    Dry glass aromas of tobacco and coffee
    Just the epitome of balance but plenty of life left as the fruit is just perfectly ripe
    Drink now or hold 5-10 more years
    This is the best wine I've tasted in the last six months

    December 26, 2020 - Textbook new world Cabernet. The purity of the fruit must be experienced to be believed. The wine is at its peak, but will continue to develop, and likely improve for at least another decade in a cold cellar. Herbaceous notes, a touch of ripe capsicum, fine-grained tannins, endless finish. Totally focused, and very Cabernet, although the prevailing fruit is dark plum. As great a Cabernet as I have had in 2020. Dry cork, but came out in one piece...
