    December 15, 2018 - A great wine, but really big. We did a PnP bit it could have benefited from a three hour decant. It totally changed over the two hours we enjoyed it.

    May 12, 2018 - Absolutely wonderful! The bouquet persisted to the end of the last glass. Smooth as velvet and great fruit...fully integrated tannins and flavors.

    May 4, 2018 - Hommage a DryCab - Washington Wines release; 5/3/2018-5/5/2018 (Various spots in Walla Walla): Part of a Creative Impulse vertical. Lots of pepper and more of a stewed fruit character. Drank next to the 2008 which was just awesome so this got overshadowed a bit.

    January 6, 2018 - Decanted and paired with steak and maple spiced carrots at Ox in Portland. Slightly tight on opening, it blossomed into something amazing within about 30 min in the decanter. Notes of cassis, black cherry and flowers. Tannins, acidity and body were all aligned. Just a delicious wine that's drinking very well right now. Drink now - 2029.

    December 3, 2017 - This is simply fabulous. Great depth of fruit with near perfect balance with the tannins. The finish is medium length.
