    March 17, 2017 - Double decanted two hours before service. Still an excellent wine that just keeps on going. Medium body, with still noticeable tannins and acidity that makes it a wine you notice. Deep red in color with a touch of lightening on the rim. The palate still shows plenty of blackberries, with a bit of violets. Easily another 5-7 years of prime drinking remaining.

    February 2, 2014 - This wine is simply stellar. Every bottle gets better. Showing very little age after 10 years. It's a perfect beef wine, with black berries and cedar being the notes standing out. I believe the wine is still improving and will go at least another 15 years, if not more. Amazing.

    December 16, 2012 - Another Saturday at Domaine (Domaine Wine Storage - Chicago, IL): A really nice Cabernet Franc. While this doesn't have the green notes that many Loire/Bordeaux cab francs may have this did have nice, pure, cool red fruit. Very silky, and totally gulpable!

    December 15, 2012 - Popped and poured, which is not right for this wine. It really opens up after about one hour of air. Still a dark red, but lightening a little. Some tobacco on the nose. The palate screams of bitter sweet dark chocolate. This wine is not yet mature, probably needing another couple of years for that, at which point I think it'll last another 10

    December 9, 2011 - Decanted for 3 hours. Supple, nice spice and soft tannins. Stored in cellar but feel this may only have one more year before it peaks.
