  • WineForRob Does not like this wine:

    November 25, 2019 - NR. I should have read the other reviews before opening. I didnt like this at all. Very tart and acidic. Actually gave me heart burn. Let it sit overnight and it still wasnt for me. Oh well.

    August 1, 2019 - Purple fruit - dark red & black currants, cherry, dark raspberry, and a little blackberry. Solid depth/concentration (medium plus body), however, it came across a little acidic and tart. Fairly long finish but also a little acidic/tart. Decanted for two hours but I didn’t care for how it was drinking and put most of it away for day two.

    Day two, a little improvement - the tannins did soften some. However, it still came across fairly tart - a prominent bing cherry profile which isn’t my thing. I’ll refrain from rating this bottle because I don’t believe it’s in the best place and needs time. I was hoping and expecting something closer to Dunnuck’s 95 rating, however, I thought this bottle was closer to the 90+ rating from WA. I’m going to lay my other bottles down for a year. 100% cab.

    June 17, 2019 - Had with a filet. Decanted for 3 hrs. Tight and acidic for1 hr, evolved into a smooth mellow full bodied treat. Great finish that lingered forever.

    November 2, 2018 - Deep opaque magenta color...nice glycerin legs....
    Nose is warm vanilla bean(sort of creme brûlée), licorice,
    Cassis.... tonight licorice dominates which I love....
    Bright cassis fruit, acidity, leather, raspberry, with nice tannins that evolve into a wonderful complex finish....so much better after decant and 1.5 hours to open....delicious!!

    June 28, 2018 - Initially very tight with an acidic tone that dominated the wine. After an hour of breathing the wine opened. Soft, plush, and well balanced wine.
