    November 26, 2020 - I picked it up at $25. In my view it’s young and needs some extra time resting. Fruit forward, all black fruit up front. Subdued aromatics. It needed airtime to get things opened up. I’ve tried the 2015 Cab as well. They were so similar I could not tell any real difference after a half hour in the glass.
    This is still showing a a lot of oak for my tastes. I’m not sure I’ll buy more.
    Is it worth $25? Yes, but there are a ton of competitors at that price point. Post COVID it would be interesting to put it into a tasting of $20-$30 cabs and see how it competed. I’d bet middle of the pack with it’s already 5 years in the bottle.

    September 20, 2020 - Not quite sure what to think of this. Rectangular rather than the more common oval label, cork reads Yuan Family Estate, Year of the Dog. Decent red blend, but even at the GO price of $27 difficult to find the value. At 5 years, perhaps additional time well help. Did pick up two additional after sampling the first.
