    September 16, 2017 - There's still life in this wine, and perhaps I was at the point of palate fatigue when we got around to tasting this one, but I was underwhelmed this time around with this wine. It might have shown better as a standalone wine than as part of a tasting.

    November 5, 2016 - Still kicking, initial nose of leather and some dusty black fruit, evolving into more eucalyptus and redder fruit. I hadn't tasted it when it was young but there's still considerable fruit on the palate, boysenberry and cedar, cocoa powder and cassis, medium plus bodied with a pipe tobacco and prune finish that goes on for quite a while. Still a bit of tannin and decent acid to keep it feeling lively. I'd say this has at least a few more years in it with a nice blend of youthful character with some nice secondary flavors creeping in.

    May 6, 2016 - Drink in a magnum bottle drinking awesome. Sweet raspberry dark blueberry. Prunes and summer hey with a hint of current Beautiful garnet with nice little legs.

    December 8, 2014 - I certainly hope this is what aged Stags Leap Cabernet is supposed to taste like because I love it. Deep plum, blackberry, cedar and a long, long finish. So balanced now. I have loved this wine for a long time and believe it has gotten to a very happy place. Enjoy!
