    March 29, 2022 - Two hour decant. Nearly opaque electric purplish magenta color (with black core). Blackberry jam, fresh blueberries, vanilla buttercream frosting, pistachio, chocolate graham cracker, and subtle toasted radish on the nose. Velvety, tongue drying, full bodied palate, with chalky acidity. Plush tannins on the longish finish.

    This continues to hit on all cylinders. It’s decadent, but not as sweet nosed as it sounds. Awesome bottle for $100.

    March 20, 2022 - PNP. Nearly opaque magenta color. Black cherry, dark chocolate, walnut, blackberry, and cinnamon graham cracker on the nose. Smooth, dry palate, with good acidity. Firm, full tannins on the longish finish.

    I was surprised how ready to go this was without a decant. An hour of air would make it even better. Held its own against Abreu, Tesseron Pym-Rae, and Kapcsandy Roberta’s.

    February 12, 2022 - 90 minute double decant. Very deep dark purple magenta color. Boysenberry jam, fudge frosting, straw, and pound cake on the nose. Smooth, dry palate, with fine, lingering acidity. Firm, full tannins on the longish finish.

    This really benefits from a shorter decant (1-2 hours). I had been doing 3+ hours and that’s too much at this stage.

    January 9, 2022 - Four hour decant. Opaque purple magenta color. Chocolate, potting soil, ripe plum, marshmallow, damp stone, and date on the nose. Smooth, dry, slightly tart palate, with vibrant acidity. Firm, satiny tannins on the longish finish.

    This bottle is transitioning to a more “mature” state and is at a low point for the moment. Keep in mind that this low point is higher than the high point for most bottles. Looking forward to more development with this beautiful Cab.

    December 28, 2021 - 90 min decant. Nearly opaque purplish magenta color. Black cherry, blackberry, cherry blossom, no. 2 pencil, cinnamon, thyme, and angel food cake crust on the nose. Very smooth, dry palate, with good, tongue coating acidity. Firm, full tannins on the longish finish.

    This is just showing it’s first tertiary notes (bit of age) and is drinking beautifully. An extra hour of decant may raise this score another point (or two). It kept improving over an hour of drinking.
