    June 29, 2019 - Decanted a couple hours. Drinking well, balanced and delicious

    June 30, 2018 - My last bottle. In a really good place. Black fruit, strawberry, mint, cassis, a touch of herbal. The tannins have really softened with a smooth, long finish. Should hold for quite a few more years, not sure if it will get any better, but really good now.

    April 14, 2018 - For the ~$70 I paid, this wine really punches above it's weight. Agree with other tasting notes on the unctuous-ness of it and the wonderful bouquet.

    Definitely requires a decant (I went for 3 hours) as it is throwing sediment like crazy. Tannins seem mostly resolved, which surprised me for what is still a pretty young wine. Drink now or hold, no need to wait.

    December 2, 2017 - Drank beautifully. Softened up over last year. Bursting with fruit. BlackBerry, strawberry, a bit of mint and cassis. Could easily sit another 5 years. Dynamite cab.
