    February 24, 2019 - Decanted for about an hour and served with a tenderloin. It remains in prime condition. Years left if you get an opportunity to buy.

    December 5, 2018 - Eighteen months ago I said that this was not a PnP wine. Well, last night that assessment proved to be wrong. I reconfirm my comments from June, 2017 - rich dark fruit, mouth-coating, balanced and very enjoyable on the palette. One note - after a while this particular bottle seemed to fade on the back end. Before that, it was wonderful.

    February 22, 2018 - could have decanted but we decided to PnP. oak is finally fully integrated. more cigar box and dark chocolate notes with red fruit; very CA and very full and long finish. def a wine worth aging and probably in a great window now and for the next few years.

    June 9, 2017 - I like Randy Lewis wines, but one word of caution - always decant. These are not PnP wines. Lewis wines really benefit for decanting and some air.
    This was a rich, dark purple wine that exuded layer after layer of dark fruit. It coats your mouth with its richness. Even at 14.5% alcohol it was balanced and did not exhibit any alcohol burning or excess acidity. This wine has some really good years left - thankfully I have a few more.
    The rating is a function of the fact that we did not decant - my mistake. The next time I will decant. My sense is that then it will really strut its stuff.

    December 24, 2016 - Christmas Eve with lots of food-shrimp, lobster, chicken, filet mignon. Very dark and inky look to it. Nose had lots of ripe fruits still hanging on. Tannins had mostly integrated throughout the wine. Finish was long and lasted around 45 seconds. Last of the 2004 vintage. Lewis makes consistently high scoring Cabernets year in and year out. This vintage was no exception. Great experience.
