    October 21, 2020 - My last bottle, out of 375. Weird medicinal nose. Off putting palate. Wine is clearly off but can’t put my finger on what it is. Down the drain.

    October 8, 2020 - Jailbreak Wine Dinner - Krug 168, Ultramarine, MacDonald and etc. (Jailbreak Brewery, Laurel, MD): Expressive nose displaying ripe red and black fruit, cherry liqueur, crème de cassis, plum, licorice, ink, bitter chocolate and earth. Very good concentration, packed very ripe red and black fruit, silky and fluid, bright acidity, medium earthy mineral, fine tannins and a medium to long very ripe red and black fruit driven finish with ash and cedar at the end. Although the nose is very ripe and gives exceptionally concentrated impression, the palate seems to lack the richness and concentration in the middle, almost too much make up but slightly lack substance. My apologies in advance as I am aware that there are a lot of passionate followers of Maybach. For me, a great caricature of Napa Cult cab but not quite there.

    July 20, 2020 - Decanted an hour and it helped. Great aromatics, but benefitted from the decant. Blueberries, black fruit, anise, tobacco.Great flavors with black fruit, tobacco, anise, chocolate, and cherries. Long smooth finish with silky tannins. Still young. In a really good place now.

    April 2, 2020 - Killer wine to begin a birthday weekend celebration. Strong blueberry and oak aromas stand out with this wine. Velvety smooth, full bodied, with black raspberry, plum, cassis, dark chocolate. So much more character than the '10 Materium which was bit of a letdown a while ago. A total pleasure and privilege to drink a wine like this.

    March 1, 2020 - Great structured wine. Very balanced with a smooth backbone. Nice cassis undertones. Great bottle of wine.
