    September 26, 2021 - Amazing every time I open one of these ... 2 hour decant is plenty now -- this wine is ready to go.

    December 13, 2020 - Drinks beautifully now. Decant or aeration is recommended. Firm tannins. Leather, smoked meat, graphite on the finish. Ripe fruit down the middle. Nicely balanced. Firm tannins thatelliw with being open an hour or two. Drink now-2025.

    November 16, 2020 - Decanted approximately 4+ hours before consuming. With decant, it may be starting to hit its drinking window but no hurry. Quality bottle of Cab with all the characteristics present.

    August 23, 2020 - Tremendous wine - 3 hour opened and 2 hour decant - opened up amazingly each hour - this wine has at least 3 years I think - fruit forward and still complex. Perfect match for a 18 hour slow cooked brisket over oak wood.

    August 9, 2020 - Opened, short decant, served with flank steak. Delicious - blackberry, plum, fig, some tobacco, leather, hint of graphite, a little minerality toward the end, smooth tannins, long finish, drinking very nicely.
