    September 4, 2019 - dark garnet hue; pepper comes through on the nose; moderate tannins in a fairly closed black currant black cherry ganache. Needs awhile to open. Good acidic structure with plenty of fruit and a long black fruit / black pepper spice aftertaste. Of course, some of the pepper may be due to the liberally peppered steak I consumed with the wine. :-)

    March 9, 2019 - Earthy, mushroom smell. Vanilla and sweet up front on the taste Still quite tannic for a 13 year-old wine. Not much of a finish though.

    April 9, 2015 - Full, ruby appearance. Lovely bouquet of cherries, raspberries, and cedar over notes of leather, conifer, and mountain air. Tightly wound but resolves itself after an hour in the glass, offering a full body, plenty of red fruit, and flavors that toggle between youth and maturity. Exhibits grip and length on the green peppercorn finish. This is a serious effort. Decant or let it slumber a few more years.

    July 2, 2014 - Just a really, really solid bottle of $20 cab. You can't go wrong with this one. Cork was saturated only up to 1/8 of an inch, with moisture up to 25% of the cork. I think this is good for a while. See previous notes.
