    April 12, 2017 - Just flat out shot. Over the hill. In contrast to the '92 Dominus (93 points), which was still in fine form, with years of good drinking still ahead. Disappointing to open bottles well stored for over 20 years and find them undrinkable.

    April 8, 2017 - Double decanted for 30 min, med. ruby, red fruit, soft tannins, mod/long finish; delicious & ready to drink

    September 24, 2016 - Suboptimal bottle. Provenance?

    September 10, 2016 - Q3 Tasting - Aged Cali (The Apt): Wine #6: I was one of the few that liked it. I called it wonderful and young tasting, but am very aware that we missed by not decanting it (and potentially for a more extended period of time). I'd never have guessed it was a 24 year old wine. Cranberry the most dominant flavor. While not really revisited during the blind, this was one of the bottles that seemed to get finished rather quickly afterwards. (1 penny)
