    March 9, 2019 - This records my first Jan 2019 tasking of this wine. Similar notes as my other note on this wine.

    March 9, 2019 - This note records a Jan 2019 tasting. This wine is a tale of two cities.
    If you take it as a PnP, you'll be disappointed. Starts life out of the bottle as a relatively light, tart wine. You have to let this one breathe for 2-3 hours. The flavor profile improves and the fruit comes forward. Overall, doesnt have the same purity of fruit that other Schraders do. So a sub-95 point wine.

    November 29, 2018 - Wood, Concord grape, wood, asphalt, dry wood, glycerin, tar, pen ink, blood, violets. There actually is a fair bit in the nose of you can get beyond the searing alcohol, which is tough to do. Lush black Cabernet grape. While I think there is something to the Georges III fruit, this is teeth staining and palate searing. Probably ~95 in the context of modern Napa Cabernet, but <85 in the broader context of good wine..

    December 31, 2017 - PnP, initially this was a massive fruit bomb a real crowd pleaser but not a serious type of wine, it was flabby although balanced. Eventually after several hours the fruit toned done SOME, revealing more graphite, tea, potting soil, vanilla, basically most of the oak flavors... It's a great wine overall, the intensity and purity of the fruit is something to be reckoned with... however overall it's just not up to snuff on must Cabs from good producers that are half the price.

    March 31, 2017 - Beautiful bouquet of dark fruit with a touch of oak and earth. Palate moderate with present tannins giving a slight rustic tinge. Wonderfully complex and long finish.
