    June 8, 2019 - Lisa's Big Birthday with Very Good Wine (Riverwoods, IL): Small glass, brief note from memory. Black plum, cassis, dark chocolate and licorice that is still just hinting at its full potential.

    January 1, 2019 - NYE 2019. Alongside the following other Cabernet's:

    Altamura Cab 12', Blackbird Contrarian 15', Rombauer Stags Leap 03', Hewitt Rutherford Estate 12', Jordan Alexander Valley 13', Pott Napa Valley 14', Hundred Acre 06'.

    Seems to have declined from my last tasting. That said similar notes and French style wine.

    October 12, 2018 - Corked!! Corked completely crumbled (very soft) and despite pouring the bottle through a filter it was flawed.

    January 20, 2018 - We gave this a 1 hour decant tonight and paired against prime steaks at Fleming’s in W Hartford Ct.

    Bordeaux like quality wine in a new world styled red. Initial aromas of cigar ash and forest floor finally gave way to berry throughout night in the glass. In mouth the depth of the juice was all black fruits. Viscous and rich mouthfeel with a finish that went in for 1 minute.

    A stunning wine which I did not think would live up to my previous experience but has held well.
