    September 28, 2019 - I last had this 2 years ago and said I would wait 3 years to try again. It's my wine and I will try if I want to! lol Decanted two hours. Dark and deep in color. Nose of dark berries and a touch of tobacco. Dark berries and spices on the palate with a decent finish. I do not see much upside from where this is at now. Enjoy!

    December 1, 2018 - Very similar to the ‘14 Greer, sophisticated, red fruit dominate, silky smooth, loads of baking spices, amazing quality, Not the most complex but I’d love this anyway.

    October 15, 2017 - Decanted for two hours and drank over another two. Dark fruit and some dust on the nose. Black cherry, black berry and baking spices. The finish is relatively short at this point. 3 years before I try again.

    September 4, 2017 - Decided to revisit in light of the release of the 2015 vintage. Dark red fruit with a touch of blue/black - dark cherry, currants, and a little blueberry/blackberry. Smooth mid-palate with solid depth and a nice purity. Nice flavors of dark berries and a little spice. Solid finish but not overly long nor deep. Decanted for two hours and drank over another two. Improved a little with time but drinking well after the decant. Drank next to a 2014 Myriad Beckstoffer Georges cab to see how they compare and I always find it interesting how different the 12c wines are from the Myriad G3 despite the fact they are derived from the same vineyard and also the same winemaker - although I would imagine from different plots. I personally prefer the profile of the Myriad but no question the 12c cabs are nice wines as well.
