    July 24, 2022 - This wine is drinking quite well now but does have more life to it. Nose of leather and wood and dark fruit. Flavors were explosive with dark fruit of black cherry, black raspberry and a little cassis. Perfectly integrated tannins leaving a long and lush finish. Perfect with my perfect Ribeye steak!!

    June 25, 2022 - Deep purple color with slow legs. New oak, cassis and blackberry on the nose. Plum, black cherry and tobacco on the palate. Long leathery finish.

    May 31, 2020 - A beautiful cabernet that needs another 3-5 years to reach its peak. One hour decant. Leafy nose followed by sweet dark red fruit. Loads of cassis and mocha. Tannins and acid both still going strong. Finish goes on for 30+ seconds. Next one in 2025.
