    June 23, 2019 - 97% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Cabernet Franc, 1% Malbec 3 Hr. (accidental) Double decant, some sediment. Black center, deep purple edge. Nose of 'fresh laundry', cherry cough syrup, blackberry, currants, green pepper, a bit of perfume. Tannins resolved at first, came back later, balanced, fruity - cherry, black currents, oak. Med. Finish. A very good BV Rutherford with the stuff to last for a few more years at least.

    June 18, 2019 - Seemed a little disjointed at first. It was better the next day. Didn't take notes, except I thought it was a nice cab. Not a great cab.

    April 28, 2019 - Great wine for a dinner party - very well liked by all guests. Rich but not too concentrated.

    February 19, 2019 - Dusty tannin, dry, medium plus weight. A bit harsh on the finish with dry vegetal notes. Some mixed black and red fruits but dry rutherford dusty notes is dominant.

    January 31, 2019 - Nose: Same dusty, perfumy red fruited aromas as last bottle (notes on 4/11/16). Palate: Soft tannins and red currant abound with cherries and a medium length, elegant finish. Last bottle of this and it was fantastic on a pop and pour basis. Wish I had a few more bottles. Insane QPR at only $18/bottle on sale.
