    July 3, 2015 - Only bottle of this in the chiller. Cork center turned to dust with corkscrew attempt, needed an ah so to remove it carefully in one piece. The cork is very soft and nearly disintegrating. light bricking at the edges and appears a little thin in the glass and on entry. Not much nose to speak of and initially a sense of tart cherries but with an hour of air in the glass a little more rounded red/black fruit with red predominating. Mild tannin and a decent finish. Probably on it's down side just a bit. I'd drink it up now if I had anymore.

    September 22, 2012 - Chocolate chocolate chocolate. Some mint and molasses. Strange tasting wine not consistent with some notes but it was still pleasurable. Plenty of ageability left on it but I don't think it will get better. Drank over 4 hours

    September 30, 2007 - Last bottle and it is a shame. This Cabernet is drinking so beautifully. The tannins are fully integrated into the sweet Cabernet fruit. Spice, berry's, beautiful oak. Drank this with a flank steak that was marinated tequila and lime for 24 hours. Fresh grated pepper was added after the marinade was finished. Very hot grill. Charring added flavor. Mashed potatoes with garlic and smoked Serrano peppers. This Cabernet? Heaven. I am truly sad that it is gone.

    December 3, 2006 - A beautifully integrated Cabernet. Wondeful nose of berries, cassis, oak. Get's better as it sits (decanted for an hour). Our third-anniversary dinner at Carnegies, Greenfiled, Indiana. Drank the Cab with a breast of plank roasted duck and roasted root vegetables.
