    January 3, 2019 - Sadly this wine was far beyond its optimal drinking window; consistent with what appears to be accelerated aging for this vintage of Karl Lawrence - clearly an off year for this producer. Dark purple color with hints of brown. Nose of over ripe fruit with earthy tones. Nothing interesting on the palate with a funky vegetable finish. I have a mag left which I will open soon hoping that I caught it before it is gone.

    January 5, 2018 - Decanted and even tried to my wine vac to drink another day but this was over the hill and just not good. Bummer

    July 23, 2017 - Similar in style to the 9/24/15 bottle except more mature. Still fresh and delicious with the NY strip steak at Entree Restaurant.

    October 13, 2016 - Performed exceedingly well, with great purity of flavor: deep red fruit, some spice and pepper. An interesting smokiness emerged after an hour or so as well.

    September 14, 2016 - Really impressed me in that old school cali way i usually reserve for older mondavis or dunns. only my second time trying a KL, but i'm starting to understand the popularity. Will seek out more.
