    October 11, 2019 - Just not my style. Its a blueberry milkshake buried in oak. Decanted for 2 hours and it didn't matter. Way too overextracted and buried in oak. I can understand how some like this style, but not me.
    Glad i dropped off the list. Happy to give my place to those who enjoy the style.

    May 23, 2017 - Day 1: So tight, even after 4 hours in decanter. blackberry is really all that is there. Nice structure.
    Day 2: More showing, but still so youthful. The blackberry has shifted to more of a boysenberry note. Some cedar is emerging on top of spice. minor band-aid note. long finish.
    This needs a lot of time. I'm not sure I prefer the "Reserve" to the "Regular", but this is damn good!

    February 26, 2017 - I totally agree with the note from “PourMeSomeMore” - that assessment is spot on in my opinion. This is a wine that will show it’s stuff with bottle age. I would wait to open this Cab, it needs a couple more years. It really didn’t open up in a way that I anticipated it would. Definitely a finesse style, very tight and inhibited type of wine at this point, showing all primary fruit and cranberries at this stage. The last time I tried this wine was 3/2/2016 so not much has changed in my opinion from my previous notes. If I had to rate this wine it would score it in 90-92 point range with future potential.

    December 17, 2016 - Wait to open....needs a couple more years. Could not get this bottle to open up more than just a bit.

    November 27, 2016 - Wanted to try a bottle as my last order from Becklyn came to my door. Really nice cabernet. Mixed fruit, leaning towards the black and blue side on a solid core with an excellent finish for how young this wine is.
