    June 2, 2020 - Soft and creamy with dark fruits and herbs. The Cab has really mellowed out, sweet tannins. Creme de cassis, dark cherry, oak and herb de Provence. Didn't notice the high alcohol at all.

    January 25, 2020 - Dog-sitting Compass and MC2 had this bottle on their counter for me to try. It is in a really good spot. 70% Cab and 30% Merlot. The merlot softens the wine nicely, making it almost velvety. Ample fruit that masks the 15% ABV. Deliciously balanced.

    January 23, 2020 - A Taste of Washington Wines w/Rasa focus (Our apt): Part of a mini vertical that we did with the 2015 in a Washington wine tasting with a focus on Rasa. This was still incredibly young. I remember that being the case when we had it a few years ago as well. It's clearly from a warmer vintage and has more of that style. I think starting to get the secondary notes, but this needs 10+ more years.

    January 12, 2020 - Fantastic Bottle, this is a big wine that calms down with some air. Blackberry and spices, long finish. Drinking at peak now.

    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.
