    December 4, 2020 - Great balance with lots of dark fruit. Currant, plum and good minerality and slight herbaceousness that was really nice and long smooth finish

    October 18, 2020 - Good but not great. I much preferred the 15’ and 16’ vintages.

    October 13, 2020 - Tasted in a lineup with 2009 Maybach Amoenus, 2012 Memento Mori, 2012 Brand, 2012 Continuum, 2014 Alpha Omega Beckstoffer Dr. Crane and 2014 Alejandro Bulgheroni. The 2012 continuum in this group tasted the most polished and finished of all of the wines here. Not so much about pour power or presence or density, this wine was just smooth, lush and focused. Great precision in the wine amongst this group. very good mouthfeel, herbiness, great complexity, could drink this all night without any palate fatigue. Just lovely.

    July 19, 2020 - A very good but not great Cabernet with aromas of black fruit and flavors dominated by black cherry and licorice. Not as complex as I expected. The tannins gripped my tongue with an earthiness that wasn’t subtle. Definitely decant for 4 or more hours as this baby needs time.

    June 21, 2020 - A bit of a disappointment for me right now which I hope improves as I've got another 5 in the cellar. Pronounced bite (alcohol?) on Day 1, bit diminished on Day 2. In my opinion, would be difficult to drink without food right now but paired fine with a ribeye. Did not hold up to the fantastic 2016 i had last year out of a half-bottle, hoping this is just a phase its in. Check back in a year.
