    April 8, 2019 - Long decant time. Not the best vintage but still solid.

    May 22, 2018 - Some tasters here CT trashed this wine. Ok so for the money you can do better but nevertheless it's still a decent wine. Had some action on the nose and some structure. I liked it. Decanted for 2 hours.

    April 29, 2018 - Typical Opus profile with unpleasant wood smell lingering. Thin and unsatisfactory on the palate. A terrible rendition of a challenging year.

    February 20, 2018 - I'll say it. What an overrated, overpriced, inflated wine. At this pricepoint, expectations are set high as they should be. Yes, it is a nice blend and I too like the hint of Franc in the blend, as well as the nose of vanilla and cherries. but the finish was disappointing, and the wine tasted too unbalanced. Really? 5 times the price of other solid blends? No friggin way. They seem to be moving in the unfortunate direction of Caymus, and as of now there are still a great number of people that buy on marketing gimmicks. I could easily pick out 15 higher quality 750 ml blends that cost $50 and under.
