    September 6, 2021 - Dark fruit, plum, and surprisingly strawberry with leather and tobacco. Very nice mouth feel with soft tannins. Nice long finish. Overall elegant but drink now....

    April 17, 2021 - really lovely, was a bit closed when first decanted but opened up slowly but surely over the 2.5 hours we drank it... last sip was the best... kinda wondering if it would get a higher rating if we decanted at noon for dinner drinking... anyway, red to purple fruit, very nice acidity / lift, somewhat simple and without any sense of heaviness or wood... my kinda wine - elegant

    February 10, 2021 - Compared to 2 years ago when I had this last, there's been a lot of oxidation here. The notes seem a little more barbecued and vegetal. A little smoky on the finish. I'm not loving this as much as the bottle a couple of years ago.

    January 31, 2021 - what a fine cab suav this was, def'ly up to the std I find in old RM Reserve... deep red and some darker fruits, great acidity, almost felt like you were smelling it on the palate... tip o the cap to the winemaker of this... going out to find more right now
