    May 24, 2020 - Best of the half case I originally purchased. An exceptional bottle and sad that it is my last of these. O’Shaughnessy truly makes some of the best wines. See previous notes. If I had any, I would drink them soon to ensure you get it at or near peak.

    February 11, 2020 - This was an extended barrel time release. Beautiful dark and blue fruit with violet notes and nicely integrated tannins.

    July 4, 2019 - Last time I opened one of these was back in 2012....what a difference six years has made! This wine has come to full maturity. Drinking at the very top and showing everything it has. Dark black mulberry, balckberry, figs and sweet roasted plums. Middle goes dark and gritty. Espresso bean, while still retaining an overt sweetness. the finish of this has great balance, nice acidity, resolving tannin, roasted black fruits and black pepper. Dang. Happy 4th of July everyone!

    June 22, 2019 - Found the oak a bit overwhelming and the wine needed a bit of time to open up. We love oshauhnessy cabs but this was just ok
