    February 11, 2015 - Gift from a guest so don't know how it was stored. Shockingly NO sign of age in visual appearance-Opaque darkish red. The nose has a hint of the glorious bouquet of QC Cab which I've had only once but made an indelible impression, and which I can only describe as a "classic cabernet" nose that "black cherry" goes somewhat towards expressing but doesn't come close. It did SING though. On the palate, it's pleasant but not complex. Some tannins remain. Finish wasn't too long. Well worth drinking but I would have been disappointed if I pulled this out of the cellar after storing ten years.

    January 28, 2012 - Opens up harsh and bitter, to such a degree that I almost poured it out. A bit of air fixes some of this, but in general it remains too hot. Not "drain cleaner bad", but not particularly satisfying either. The only thing that saves is it a resinous cherry that lurks in the background. This does get progressively better the more air it gets. Nevertheless, I'm not disappointed that this is my last bottle.

    August 5, 2011 - Really, really bad. Acid water with some oak thrown in.

    June 6, 2011 - No rating. Grapey and hot with some wood chips thrown in. Perhaps it was slightly corked, but it certainly wasn't very good.
