    March 14, 2020 - Same note as before with 3-4 hour decant but just further along. Cherry chapstick, tobacco, dusty earth and cassis. Surprisingly I get the feeling this is unmunipulated and a nice expression of Rutherford. Has plenty of time left but smooth right now.

    November 28, 2019 - A lovely claret color marks the 2014 next to the much darker 2013 and 2015 wines. This wine is immediately appealing, with a nose that overlays a whole range of intriguing aromas on a core of black cherry and plum fruit. Beyond that fruit you find the barest notes of sweet pipe tobacco, sage, mushroom. River and sweeter than the 2013, the 2014 also is a notch less severe: the acidity here is good but not dominating, and the tannins seem more supple and round. Drinking very well tonight!

    Treatment: I opened these six hours early but they seemed tight as dinner approached. So I double decanted to a clean decanter and then back into the bottle about two hours before dinner. This worked well for the 2014-2016, although the 2013 didn’t really unwind until the next day.

    August 15, 2019 - Deep ruby red in appearance. A bit tight on the nose that took some time to open up with some anise, baking spices, purplish flowers, blackberries and cassis. Heavy tannins (7/10) with a finish that keeps lengthening. Full body that keeps gaining depth and complexity with air. Layered with dark spices, blackberries, cocoa and a bit floral. Long and lingering finish. Drink till 2039.

    March 3, 2019 - Braxton Cellars Cellar Raid (Libertyville, IL): Very well made wine especially for this style of Cabernet. Big and plump - super rich.
    Lots of dark dense fruit - cassis, blackberries, chocolate smoke and anise.
    Long finish. Some plummy elements.
    This needs some time in the bottle to mellow out but it was very enjoyable nonetheless.

    March 3, 2019 - Raid the Braxton Cellar (Braxton Cellar - Libertyville IL): Small glass, brief note from memory. Another example of a well made wine, but not close to what I like in Cabernet.
