    May 30, 2019 - Just opened it, but it has some bottle age already. Some heat, alcohol. Nose of crushed rocks and wet rose. Full mouth feel and finish. But, not drawing great interest thus far.

    April 30, 2019 - * vanilla on the nose, perhaps a caramel or creme brulee
    * Middle palate shuts down pretty hard and I get a nice creaminess but very little fruit
    * Cherry is more black cherry
    * The finish is tannic and sharp

    April 10, 2019 - 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged 36 months in new French oak. 14.8% ABV.
    Let it breathe for 45 minutes and draft over 2 hours. Funk on the nose burns off after a few minutes. Pure, rich fruit, with chewy tannins early that mellow out by hour 2. Dark cherry notes. Cola. What a long finish.

    March 10, 2019 - This records a Nov 2018 tasting. A pure, rich wine that brings a long finish. Dark cherry notes. A lot of bang for the buck here. Can hold its own with wines twice the price in my cellar.

    February 27, 2019 - Drank a while ago. Still one of my favorite hedonistic bottles.
