    August 5, 2020 - Pop and pour, these notes are an hour after initially opening.

    Fruit is in the background; whether in a dumb phase, faded or an off bottle is unknown. While the soft, dry tannins are clearly more powerful, the imbalance isn’t problematic, it’s just unusual for QC.
    Still a great pairing with Home-ground burgers and home baked buns!

    2.5 hrs after opening the tannins have really faded and this is now fruit-driven, with red cherry, rhubarb. Still enjoyable, but I’ll knock a point off of my original 90 rating.

    May 30, 2020 - Creditable non-California cabernet based red. Medium purple with minimal legs. Better the second night (vacuvinned) Medicinal nose with little fruit and some camphor. Better on the palate--not so sweet fruit, both blue and black; brief to moderate finish which improves the taste. Decent qpr for a third wine

    May 24, 2020 - Pop and pour at a local BYO restaurant we hadn’t visited before. My sense is that drinking from proper wine glasses would have added a point or two.

    Still good fruit to this but the structure is fading. I concur w my prior notes to drink remaining bottles during CY20, maybe early’21 to avoid further degradation

    March 15, 2020 - Decanted for one hour. Cassis, herbs currant, plum fruit, and violets on the nose and palate. Medium tannins and finish. Drinking nicely.
