    March 23, 2019 - Dark fruit, cassis, plum, and tobacco notes on the nose. Nicely integrated tannins with notes of more dark fruit, vanilla, and sweet plum. Long finish. Beautiful! This tastes decidedly Old World...

    June 15, 2018 - Blind 2001/2002 Cab Tasting (Chez Hughes): Blind side-by-side with the 02. Gorgeous and typical Forman nose that surrounds plum fruit with a medley of tar, tobacco, medicinal herbs and cedar. Incredible velvety smooth texture. Tannins are smoothing and integrated. Long with precise, complex flavors. I slightly preferred this to what turned out to be the 02.

    June 15, 2018 - California Cabernet 2001/2002 Blind Tasting (Hughes House - Chicago IL): Double blind in 01/02 Cali Cab tasting. Black cherry with some faint tobacco leaf and savory spice. Nicely integrated structure giving this excellent harmony and balance. Good+ weight and length. Easily my favorite of the tasting. Correctly ID'ed this as '01.

    May 17, 2018 - Decanted 45min prior to consumption. Some allspice and brett on the nose like cigar ash. Tight and focused. Lot's of fruit in here just a bit cradled yet. More complexity on the finish and some cedar coming out later. Last glass taken home drank like a ringer for a classic left bank Bordeaux. Terrific though I'd recommend holding at least a few more years for best expression. This one is gonna last quite a while.

    August 20, 2017 - Striking intensity. Recent reviews capture it well. Still has a long life ahead.
