    November 3, 2019 - Generous. Doesn't take long for the nose to open but could benefit from a decant. Green bell pepper (cab franc) notes develop after 1-2 hours. Ripe fruit, plums and bananas, coffee. It is a little flabby and structure is not as linear as, say, a Pauillac. Enjoyable nonetheless. Can probably surf the cellar for another decade - still some baby fat so shed.

    September 28, 2019 - Planned on tucking this away for years, expecting great things given Tim Atkin's 100 point score. Wife accidentally opened, drank a glass, the corked. On day two it had opened up wonderfully- still on the young side but not the infanticide that I'd feared. Acidity upfront as you'd expect, but not excessively so, good structure but tannins already well integrated, dark fruits more forward than you'd see in a Bordeaux of this caliber but restrained by New World standards. Really top notch. More to come, but no shame in drinking now.

    September 14, 2019 - Love the informative label. 99 on that. The wine isn't bad either. Concentrated. Fruity. Oakey in a good way. Smooth. Black currant. Black pudding. It's good now and maybe great in a couple of years. Saving half til tomorrow. Brb.

    Day 2 and it's even better. Sweet fruit. 93. Two bottles left. Will be very interesting to follow.

    August 30, 2019 - The book club goes asado and tries South African reds (At a backyard somewhere near Telefonplan): agree with Rossi.wine's note. This is really good stuff. But obviously in the smooth, oaky and fruity genre. Great with our asado from the get go, but stayed the course and I think this has the stuffings to keep (although why would you when it's this darn good right now?).

    July 12, 2019 - I’m still much a novice, but this is an excellent cab. Lots of oak, good balance with cherry
