    February 9, 2020 - Very moldy on the nose after initial decant. Cork held up very well After an hour, still moldy on the nose with a dirty vinegar on the palate. Left in decanter for another 2 hours. While nose improved slightly, flavor profile improved tremendously. Not as bold as expected at prime. Definitely on the back side of prime. Strongly suggest immediate consumption with lengthy decant.

    November 4, 2015 - Was expecting this to be OTT, but was surprised to find a well balanced, relatively understated Cali Cab. Nicely concentrated (but not over extracted or overly rich) tart black fruit, plenty of cigar box, a bit of dark chocolate, very good acidity, and a long, smooth finish. Probably at its peak.

    May 14, 2012 - Awesome Wine! Ready to drink now, I would not wait any longer. Decanted it for about 45 minutes, I would not decant it for any longer then that.
