    September 12, 2021 - Drink up. Only needed a 30 minute decant and it was ready to go. Consumed by guests so quickly that I didn't get to lock down any details. From what I remember, quite a nice nose with cassis, earth, tobacco. Wonderfully concentrated plum, red raspberry, current with soft and sweet tannins that linger for a good 25 seconds. Will drink this next time with fewer people around. :D Got 5 more bottles so I may try next one soon.

    June 12, 2021 - Big, juicy Napa Cabernet - nicely integrated tannins (velvet on the pallet). Drinking very nicely now and for at least 5 more years (and likely 10).

    April 15, 2021 - No decant. This wine exudes class. Lots of minerality and herbs with a core of cassis and dark cherry. Sweet tannin give depth and a great finish.

    March 6, 2021 - I decanted this, but it didn’t need it. Plush, with excellent fruit. Blackberry preserves, licorice, currant all meld together in a very tasty wine. Little tannins showed. No need to age this, in my opinion, and I don’t see it improving. No danger of decline anytime soon, but this strikes me as a wine to drink for its exuberant fruit, not one to lay down.
