    July 7, 2017 - Wowee! Dug this out of the back of the cellar, and not expecting much. Smokey and delicious. Great nose, and wonderful on the palate.

    March 10, 2016 - This is still drinking well. A lovely claret w/ dark & red fruit, leans toward cab. Tannins quite mild now, but still has structure & good acidity.

    January 5, 2015 - Full-bodied wine, quite similar to a french bordeaux with a solid flavor of oak. Rich dark color, sweet fruit on the pallet, a hint of vanilla and a nice long dry finish. The CT range ends 2014, but I think this wine could live on for several more years. I wish I had a dozen more.
    Wonderful!

    October 18, 2014 - Really strong South African Cab blend. Big, ripe fruits. Drinking great right now. While might have some more left wouldn't hesitate to pop right now. Enjoy!

    May 3, 2014 - Big earthy nose.
    This was a big wine. Although the tannins were pretty tame, this is still in the prime of life and I think will last another decade.
    Leather and tobacco with dark fruit still standing tall. Long finish with a lot going on. (didn't take any notes at the restaurant).
