    April 13, 2019 - 100% cab aged 20 months in rare Darnajou French oak barrels. 14.6% ABV. I let it breathe for only about 30 minutes and drank over 2.5 hours. Consistent with my prior note, unbelievably pure, rich fruit. Full bodied and concentrated. Perfectly balanced acidity. Dark berry notes. No cedar or licorice notes. Ready to drink now if you want. Remains among the best Schraders I've had.

    March 9, 2019 - This is a note for a late January tasting. Unbelievably pure, ripe fruit.
    Ready to drink now if you want. Tiers of flavor with a long finish. The 2011 T6 was disappointing but this is great.

    January 18, 2019 - Well I guess I am not toeing the party line here in that I did not get this one. Only word I could think of during 2-3 glasses was monolithic. Was disappointing in that, while I knew this was going to be big (and was once a fan of these), it just did not have anything to say other than 'look how decadent I am'. Reminded me, when watching the newest episode of Grand Tour of the Hennessey Exorcist Camaro - 1000HP (so wow, that is decadent!), but just try turning the thing (no grace).

    September 5, 2018 - Decanted over cocktails and served. Pure, dark fruit, very simple flavor profile with the single clone 6 including baker's chocolate and cassis. Medium-plus finish. Very enjoyable.
