    July 16, 2020 - A little plumy with stewed fruit. Needed a bit of time to open up but wasn't as full as I expected. Still a solid wine, but a little disappointing.

    May 7, 2020 - This was stored properly following delivery from the winery, cork was good. Unfortunately, the wine was not. Well over the hill, disjointed, old mushroomy. No hope here. WTF?

    November 23, 2019 - Cathy corison is known for restrained cabs in the land of overripeness. Incredible to me that this wine is still so ripe. Still has years to go. Very enjoyable despite my football team losing.

    Continued to improve for 3+ hrs. Really beautiful wine. But still too young.

    October 20, 2019 - Fruit is receding, tannins are softening. An elegant Napa cab.

    July 15, 2019 - Drinking well, with currant and dark cherry fruit in a medium bodied frame with some harmonious herbal/shroomy notes more on the periphery at present. On the claret side of Napa to be sure, some might find the middle of the wine underwhelming. Decanted one hour. 91 for me last night but drinking outside as it got chilly flattened the nose by a point or two. Drink now - ~2025.

braised beef shortribs, Thanksgiving dinner at Tracie & Mitch's. This was our third and last bottle. This followed Duckhorn 3 Palms Merlot (incredible), then Chateau Dez Oremes left bank Bordeaux.
